Derby client's current identifier is "DNC" and could stay the same. 

There do not thing there has  to be a one to one match of the Requester 
and Server  product id.   Some of the servers have multiple clients and
of course all can't match.    JCC doesn't match any of the servers it
connects to.

I would suggest our line in the talbe could look like this:

Organization: Derby (Apache Open-Source Foundation)
DRDA Requester:   DNC
DRDA Server: CSS

DRB goes away.

Would that be acceptable to you? 

Now theoretically that documentation would regress  for older versions
of Cloudscape, but I'll take that over a product regression  breaking
every existing Derby client in the world any day.
