My situation:
- Created an application with Netbeans that uses the Java "Derby" database on my local machine.
- I can connect to the database fine on my machine by using the connect options in Netbeans.
- I don't want to use Netbeans to execute this program.
- I have the JAR file available. When I try executing the JAR file, it will fail because I'm not connected to the database.

My Questions:
How do I execute my program and connect to the database without using Netbeans? Should I be using a script to connect to the database and then executing the JAR file? Is there a better way?

Thanks,

Derby has nothing to do with NetBeans; it's a database that's bundled with the JDK. If you have problems using it outside of NetBeans, then it may be a classpath issue (meaning the Derby jar files are not available when the program is run). What command are you using to run your program?
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
