Subject I postpone modification to dblook.(Re: Patch again again for DERBY-167.)
Date Thu, 19 May 2005 12:35:44 GMT
Hello.

I decide to postpone modification of dblook.

Modification itself is not difficult.
However , it is needed to know all about SYSTEM table , to check 
modification was correctly done.

It is a little hard for me to understand all about SYSTEM table right now.

//This may be suitable for my next task ...

Best regards.
