Subject Re: [jira] Commented: (DERBY-214) Remove System.exit() calls from the DB2jServerImpl.java
Date Fri, 29 Apr 2005 17:28:06 GMT
Hi, Kathey.  My background is definitely on the networking/runtime side 
more than in database internals.  I looked at the NetworkServer and was 
a little daunted.  It didn't help that there was no client code to look 
at, but that has recently changed.

I humbly request that I try to do some simple little patches (although 
look at my last attempt to find something simple :) ), I can focus on 
NetworkServer small patches, and start getting comfortable with the 
code.  Perhaps we can do some email exchanges where you help me through 
the architecture of the NetworkServer, it was a little hard to follow.
