In her attached PDF file Ramandeep wrote "the jvm memory size will 
depend on how long the test cases will be executed for". This sounds 
like Derby has a memory leak, which is a real problem. The memory usage 
should quickly rise to a peak and then level off, unless the test driver 
has a memory leak itself, or it steadily increases the number of open 
connections, PreparedStatements, etc.
