This isn't probably a problem yet, but I think I've heard that JUnit 4
is a pretty massive change from JUnit 3. In particular, JUnit 4 switches
to usage of Java source annotations (the "@" syntax) for specifying
test behavior, and hence requires that you use JDK 1.5 or higher.

Since Derby probably doesn't want to require JDK 1.5 yet, we may actually
have a requirement to stick with JUnit 3 for a while.
