Thanks for the edits and information, Rick!
Based on the background info and what you said, I wonder if the language about the deploy and undeploy arguments should be something like the following:
"If set to 1, indicates the existence of an SQLJ deployment descriptor file. Derby ignores this argument, so it is normally set to 0."
Would this work? I suppose if they set it to 1 it would be harmless, so there's no need to say that it must be set to 0.
Also thanks for the tactful correction of my typo on the varchar size. I gather 32672 is correct, not 32762.
I notice that several topics in the manuals have the same typo; I should probably file another JIRA to fix these:
rtoolsimport64241.dita, "Parameters for the import procedures" (COLUMNINDEXES entry)
rrefgetdbpropfunc.dita, "SYSCS_UTIL.SYSCS_GET_DATABASE_PROPERTY system function"
rrefsyscsruntimestatsfunc.dita, "SYSCS_UTIL.SYSCS_GET_RUNTIMESTATISTICS system function"
rrefimportdataproc.dita, "SYSCS_UTIL.SYSCS_IMPORT_DATA system procedure"
rrefimportdataproclobs.dita, "SYSCS_UTIL.SYSCS_IMPORT_DATA_LOBS_FROM_EXTFILE system procedure"
So do some of the code files (in comments only):
