Subject Suggestion for mentee proposal for Jayaram Suramanian
Date Wed, 02 Dec 2009 18:46:34 GMT
Jayaram asked me to make some suggestions for  tasks for the next three 
months at approximate six hours per week.    I think it would be good to 
start with some test conversions and then move into sysinfo 
improvements.   So something like:

Ramp up (3 weeks)
1) Do tutorial. Set up build, test, debug environment. 
2) Read up on JUnit testing, review existing conversions.

JUnit conversions (4 weeks)
3) Convert autoincrement.sql to JUnit.  This should be a good straight 
forward starter. I think we need a Jira for this one.
4) DERBY-4114.  Convert selectivity.sql This was an old test that was 
contributed but has old Cloudscape syntax, so will require some thought 
to convert to use Derby syntax.
5) DERBY-4249. Create a simple store recovery test in JUnit.  This will 
provide a framework for converting store tests.

Sysinfo improvements ( 5 weeks)
These will improve supportability of DERBY significantly.
6) DERBY-4441 - Change sysinfo to print out more specific JVM information.
7) DERBY-1272 - log sysinfo to derby.log. Need to to nail down behavior 
with community and deal with possible security manager issues.

Does that sound like a reasonable amount of work for 12 weeks at 6 hours 
per week?   There are always bumps along the way.

BTW: Here is some info on what Jayaram will have to submit for the program:
