Hi Dan.  Welcome to Apache.

Among other hats, I'm one of the developers of the Axion database project, 
which is one of your neighbors here in the Incubator and in the future 
likely one of your neighbors in the Apache DB project.  I, and I think 
others on the Axion development team, are looking forward to exploring 
areas of collaboration.  The little I know of Derby suggests there's a lot 
of potential synergies here.  Indeed, assuming sufficient overlap of 
social, technical, functional and design goals we may want to look toward 
eventual consolidation.

While we're waiting for the Derby codebase to be loaded onto trucks and 
shipped over to Apache-land, it might be helpful for outsiders if you or 
someone else familiar with the codebase could provide an overview of how 
Derby is structured internally.

(PS: I'm going to be going offline sometime tomorrow for about a week. 
If I don't respond to a query during that time, don't take it personally.)
