Thanks Andrew for working on this.

[snip ... proposal to make Derby jars available in svn]

I have not understood the full details but your plan to just have a
single copy of jars from a particular release and make them available
to multiple branches seems like a good idea to me.

I would be glad if you are willing to help me out here. I have been
working on this assuming the jars will be available in the svn in a
specific location in the code tree (e.g:

This is the general idea I am working on: Specify a new property
(derby.source.path) in ant.properties file which points to the source
files on the local machine. When building upgrade tests, this property
will be used to create a property (derbyTesting.jarPath) in the
<test>_app.properties file. When running the upgrade tests, the code
looks for derbyTesting.jarPath property and adds the relative path
(e.g: tools/testing/derby/{version}) to it and uses this as the
location of previous release jars. With this approach, we will need
the svn workspace (which has the previous release jars) to be on the
machine where we run the tests.

Does this sound good to you? Or do you have any other ideas?
