As part of the Java EE 7 development process, multi-tenancy will be a topic that is addressed.

As part of this, I suspect I will need to look at what changes if any are needed at the JDBC level.

Until we go down this path with Java EE 7 and the JDBC Expert Group,  I would be leery of trying to just create a Derby specific implementation which might not be compatible with what comes out of the JCP EG work.

Hi Devs,
These days I work for a project which compare the different approaches of the application level multi-tenant approaches. So I had this impression of why we can't do this in the JDBC level so that anyone can use the advantages of the multi-tenancy without much worrying of implementing the application level multi-tenant approaches. So I like to work on implementing multi-tenant JDBC driver for Apache Derby. Since this is a new concept and may involve some research I may not able to complete this within the summer but I like to do a fair amount of the work within the time and complete after that. 

Please may I know your precious ideas about this.
