The JDBC driver just opens a normal SQL session, so it stores tables
without explicit given schema in the default schema, which can be set
	ALTER USER "myuser" SET SCHEMA "myschema"

Alternatively, within a session you can use
	SET SCHEMA "myschema"


monetdb-> create schema "myschema";
Operation successful

monetdb-> set schema "myschema";

monetdb-> create table a (id int);
Operation successful

monetdb-> \d
TABLE   myschema.a
