      Description

      In 64 bit windows vista OS, if an executable is 32 bit than it is generally installed under
      "C:\Program Files (x86)" folder. The brackets in the path cause problems while connecting
      to any database stored in that folder(in jar format) through derby JDBC.

      The effective connection string is :
      jdbc:derby:jar:(C:/Program Files(86)/ClassicModels.jar)ClassicModels
      This fails because the closing brackets is not escaped.

      I looked into the documentation and didn't find references to escaping the brackets in the path.
      I think this problem should be reproducible on all platforms.

      you cannot connect to it,
