derivation of a picewise defined function

Hi, 

I have the following problem. I need to work with the first derivative
of a picewise defined function. 

A simple example :

h[x_] := x /; 1 <= x
h[x_] := E^(x - 1) /; x <= 1

I define 
j[x_] := h'[x]

For 1<= x j[x] computes the values, j[x]=1 for all 1<=x, but for 
x<=1 it returnes me j[x]=h'[x].

I need also the values of j for x<=1. How can I do that with
Mathematica? 

Thank you.

Luiza
