Subject Re: [GSoC] Derby Test and Fix
Date Mon, 16 Mar 2009 04:55:26 GMT
Hi Folks,
Sorry for not keeping you up-to-date on my progress. But I've been reading
Derby documentation and trying out various test suites. I must say that
Derby is one of the best documented open source projects I've ever
encountered :) Really good work folks. I've tried out most of the test
suites so far (I'm running them one by one) and I can already see a couple
of test failures. I will post a detailed report on my observations very

Also I'd like to know that will any of you folks be at Amsterdam for
upcoming ApacheCon? I'll be there and would love to get to know you devs
