Hi Mayuresh,

Thanks for a great suggestion. We will definitely take this into account :)

Planning has started for junit testing of the replication feature, but
as far as I know, no plans have been made for writing messages/tracing 
to e.g. derby.log. However, I think this is a very good idea. We should 
at least have messages like:

derby.log on master:
ReplicationMaster flushTo: 999
ReplicationMaster LogShipper: sent message 1234 to slave, highest log 
instant: 999

derby.log on slave:
ReplicationSlave: received message 1234, highest log instant: 999
ReplicationSlave: appended log instant 555
ReplicationSlave: appended log instant 672
ReplicationSlave: appended log instant 999

It is to early to make a guess for how much and detailed information 
would be required, but that can be decided upon as the work progresses. 
The derby.log messages should be turned on by a replication_debug 
variable being true since a lot of messages would otherwise be generated.
