      Description

      The portal.properties JDBC settings for Derby does not use a valid URL for the database connection. Also, an additional file is needed when configuring Liferay with Derby. I have documented my process here:

      http://www.liferay.com/group/liferayqa/wiki/-/wiki/AWESOME%20QA%20WIKI/How+to+install+Derby
