  Can you explain why we need two suites.

Well, no, in light of what you write below:
--------------
    There were changes made to Cloudscape (and thus in Derby) that 
automatically configure encryption based upon the running virtual 
machine, especially in JDK 1.4. I know the split of the encryption 
suites was before these changes were made, where previously the 
encyption provider had to be stated explicitly if it wasn't Sun's. Thus 
can we handle a single JVM indpendent suite now? ---------------

Thx for the info - I was not aware of the fix. So here's a new patch, 
with just one suite, running the storemats suite with an encryption 
algorithm.

Note also, that for the encryption tests to work, one *does* need to 
load separate encryption provider jars from sun when working with 
jdk131. With jdk14 it's included. This will go into the readme when I 
update it. The suite will get skipped if you don't have the provider stuff.
