Build-time processing of "metadata.properties" file handles slashes incorrectly.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

         Key: DERBY-675
         URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-675
     Project: Derby
        Type: Bug
  Components: Build tools  
    Versions: 10.2.0.0, 10.1.1.1, 10.1.1.0    
    Reporter: A B
 Assigned to: A B 
    Priority: Minor
     Fix For: 10.2.0.0


As found and described by Mamta here:

http://www.nabble.com/-Derby-573-Optimizer-overrides-and-metadata.properties-files-t460642.html

During the ant build process, Derby's metadata.properties file is modified by the ODBCMetadataGenerator
class and that class treats backslashes that occur in the metadata.properties file incorrectly.
 More specifically, it treats every backslash as the end of a line and thus will translate
things like

FROM --DERBY-PROPERTIES joinOrder=FIXED \\n \

into

FROM --DERBY-PROPERTIES joinOrder=FIXED \
\
n \

(in other words, escaped characters like "\n" are handled incorrectly)..
