Ah, good.

I was rather confused by this download step in my setup. The link
in java/testing/README.htm points to:


The link on this page asked me to register myself with IBM, which
I did, and then took me to


There are 9 downloads listed on that page, so I went down the list and
found the thing that looked most likely to me:

   8.  Released product:   IBM Cloudscape (IBM DB2 JDBC
       Universal Driver, for Cloudscape/Derby)
       IBM Cloudscape V10.1 is a pure, open source-based Java relational
       database management system that can be embedded in Java programs and
       used for online transaction processing (OLTP)
       Operating system:  Java, Java2  | Version:  2.4.17  | Size:  1.03MB  |
        Release date:  04 Oct 2004

This certainly looks like it should be version 2.4.17.

When I clicked on that item, I get a file called db2jcc_for_derby.zip,
with a readme dated Sep 29, 2004, and jar files dated Aug 24, 2004:

-bash-2.05b$ ls -l /home/bpendleton/downloads/derby/db2jcc/lib
total 1064
-r--r--r--    1 bpendleton users     1077696 Aug 24  2004 db2jcc.jar
-r--r--r--    1 bpendleton users         673 Aug 24  2004 db2jcc_license_c.jar

But, as you point out, the Derby Information section in supersimple.diff
clearly states that I'm running version 1.0 of the driver:

--------- Derby Information --------
JRE - JDBC: J2SE 1.4.2 - JDBC 3.0
[/home/bpendleton/src/derby-subversion/trunk/jars/insane/derby.jar] alpha - (315052M)
[/home/bpendleton/src/derby-subversion/trunk/jars/insane/derbytools.jar] alpha -

[/home/bpendleton/downloads/derby/db2jcc/lib/db2jcc_license_c.jar] 1.0 - (581)

So, I guess I'm confused: where did I go wrong, and what do I need
to do differently?
