Shutting down an in-memory database is a prerequisite to deleting it and 
reclaiming the memory which it occupies. In addition, gracefully 
shutting down a database lets Derby reclaim the pre-allocated but unused 
sequence numbers needed for explicitly declared sequences as well as 
identity columns. That, in turn, prevents Derby from leaking those 
pre-allocated chunks when the database is booted next.

Hope this helps,
