I can give a shot at writing tests.

In java/engine/org/apache/derby/impl/sql/compile/CurrentOfNode.java
the exposedTableName object is built using the makeTableName method.
I feel changing the signature of the getExposedName() method would be a
much larger operation and users might not like the change as well as the
current method just returns a String and the new method would return a
TableName object.

The correlation name would be "C" ( no associated schema ).

This is because for the query "select * from B.T1 AS C", "*" is not
associated with a table name, that is in the code allTableName will be
null and hence no schema is associated with C. (although the default
schema is A)

I agree the SQL spec does not talk about this, hence the above solution.

Can all of you kindly vote for the patch ?
