Driver command

The Driver command takes the value of the DriverNameString argument and issues a Class.forName request to load the named class.

The class is expected to be a JDBC driver that registers itself with java.sql.DriverManager.

You may find this command useful if you need to reload the driver after you have shut down the Derby engine and deregistered the driver.

If the Driver command succeeds, a new ij prompt appears for the next command.

driver 'org.apache.derby.jdbc.EmbeddedDriver';
ij> connect 'jdbc:derby:menuDB;create=true';
