Saving embedded Derby DB to a file.

To create a derby db and get a connection I do:

        String driver = "org.apache.derby.jdbc.EmbeddedDriver";
        Class.forName(driver).newInstance();
        Properties props = new Properties();
       
        // to create a new database
        props.put("create","true");
       
        return DriverManager.getConnection(dbUri, props);

I then do normal JDBC operations on that connection to create tables and insert values into those tables.


Then what do I do? How do I tell it to store that data on disk somewhere so that I can open it again later? I assume that the "createFrom" property would be used to reopen an existing derby db. But, I don't see a property that specifies how to save the data there in the first place.

The connection url to create an embedded db is like
    jdbc:derby:directory:C:\name;create=true
And after the db is created you can omit the "create=true" option
