Hello there,
I have been following the spring tutorial (http://static.springsource.org/docs/Spring-MVC-step-by-step/part5.html).

When I tried to create database using following command

For Windows add:


java -classpath ..\war\WEB-INF\lib\hsqldb.jar org.hsqldb.Server -database test

Now you can open a command window, change to the 'springapp/db' directory and start the database by running one of these startup scripts. I am getting following error.

C:\RSAWorkspace\spring\firstspring\db>java -classpath ..\war\WEB-INF\lib\hsqldb.jar org.hsqldb.Server -database test
[Server@6ca1c]: [Thread[main,5,main]]: checkRunning(false) entered
[Server@6ca1c]: [Thread[main,5,main]]: checkRunning(false) exited
[Server@6ca1c]: [Thread[main,5,main]]: Failed to set properties

at org.hsqldb.server.Server.setProperties(Unknown Source)
at org.hsqldb.server.Server.main(Unknown Source)

Could anyone tell me what I am doing wrong. I am using latest hsqldb.jar file in my lib folder.

Hi Tyagi,

I have encountered exactly the same issue. Subsequently i googled to the hsqldb user guide (http://hsqldb.org/doc/guide/guide.html#N10148).

According to the user guide, the following command is recommended in order to start the server :
