Turn off referential integrity in Derby? is it possible?

Is there a setting in derby, for example an sql query ala "SET DATABASE REFERENTIAL INTEGRITY FALSE" where i can turn on and off referential integrity?


According to this post on the mailing list (from 2006) it is not possible:


I couldn't find anything in the manual either.

And the list of jdbc parameters has nothing, too.


If you have a constraint that you don't wish to enforce, you can use DROP CONSTRAINT to drop it.

I frequently drop a constraint for a period of time while I am re-structuring my database, then re-add the constraint subsequently when I have the new data arranged as I want it.
