it written in some books by default JDK6 comes with Derby (DB)jars and by adding a couple of jar files to class path we can simply use the database.

But my computer has jdk 6.1, but there is nothing related to derby is in lib folder? may i know how to test JDK 6 new features through my command prompt or eclipse ide?

many thanks,
rahul

You can download Derby ("JavaDB" if you get it from SunOracle separately.

I'm not sure what you're asking about "how to test"--just write code that uses the new features and run it.

Its a long time I did this so my info might be a bit rusty.
On windows, when you run the Java installer, the JavaDB option is not selected by default. Also it installs in a separate location (c:\Program Files\Sun\Java DB) or something similar.

I believe it is selected by default, but indeed in the folder you mentioned - separated from the JDK. It is also separately listed in the Add/Remove programs list.
