I am trying to deploy a cmp bean using J2EE SDK that comes with the Derby database. However, I don't know how to use Derby database to create some tables and do some SQL. I try the db.apache.org/derby site but I got completely lost. Can some good guys out there help me with this: After installing J2EESDK how do I start the console or window so I can do some quick Derby SQL tutorial and where to get the Derby SQL tutorial ? What is the default user name and password for Derby ?
