You might start out by using a text editor in order to insert some 
garbage into the datafiles which hold the base table and the index. 
Those files are located in the seg0 directory of the database. A script 
like the following will tell you which datafiles correspond to which 
base tables and indexes:

connect 'jdbc:derby:memory:db;create=true';

create table t1( a int );
create index t1_idx on t1( a );
create table t2( a int primary key );

create function toHex( conglomerateNumber bigint )
returns varchar( 10 )
language java parameter style java no sql
external name 'java.lang.Long.toHexString';

select s.schemaName, t.tableName,
        'c' || toHex( c.conglomerateNumber ) || '.dat' dataFile,
        c.isIndex, c.isConstraint
from sys.systables t, sys.sysconglomerates c, sys.sysschemas s
where t.tablename not like 'SYS%'
and t.tableid = c.tableid
and t.schemaid = s.schemaid
order by tableName, dataFile;

I see the following interesting exceptions being raised by 


Hope this helps,
