Scope of Derby Properties

Scope of Derby Properties

A property in Derby belongs to one or more of these scopes (for more information about scopes, precedence, and persistence, see Properties overview):

  • system-wide

    System-wide properties apply to an entire system, including all its databases and tables if applicable.

    • Set programmatically

    System-wide properties set programmatically have precedence over database-wide properties and system-wide properties set in the derby.properties file.

    • Set in the derby.properties file
  • database-wide

    A database-wide property is stored in a database and is valid for that specific database only.

    Database-wide properties are stored in the database and are simpler for deployment. System-wide parameters are probably easier for development.
