that's weird because there's no Pointbase database in 1.4, there's Derby (unless maybe they switched between Pointbase and Derby in a minor version and you have an old version). Derby does not have a user interface of any kind, only a JDBC driver.

I am reading the book "Beginning J2EE 1.4" by Apress, it says all I have to do is download J2EE 1.4 SDK and in its directory there is a place to "Start Pointbase" console. So this is probably the old version.

hmm, What version of the appserver are they referring to? The 8.2 appserver comes with Derby. Probably the 8.0 or 8.1 included Pointbase, Derby itself is rather new.
If you are using Derby (and not pointbase) then the ij command will open up a console from where you can enter SQL commands. Also if you cannot find enough documentation on Derby, then look at the Cloudscape manuals. [ September 04, 2006: Message edited by: Peter Rooke ]
