Improve Derby's Code Coverage - GSoC 2012 Project

                 Key: DERBY-5674
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-5674
             Project: Derby
          Issue Type: Task
            Reporter: Tiago R. Espinha
            Priority: Minor

This year's edition of Google Summer of Code includes, once again, the Apache Software Foundation.
As I did last year, I'm offering to mentor a student again this year, this time for a different

For this project, the student is required to have some basic knowledge of JUnit and of how
code coverage works. Currently some packages of Derby have poor code coverage. Emma defines
the minimum acceptable code coverage as 70% and some engineers suggest a minimum of 80% is

Students are invited to look at [1] to get familiar with Emma's code coverage reports on Derby.

A few suggestions of classes that require improvements are:
- org.apache.derby.client.net - importnat package with poor coverage.
- org.apache.derby.iapi.types - several classes not tested at all and others with poor coverage.
- org.apache.derby.iapi.jdbc - could use extensive improvements.
- org.apache.derby.impl.io - another package with poor coverage.

The candidate students are also expected to come up with their own schedule for the tests
they plan on creating and to discuss this schedule publicly on the mailing list.

After a student applies, a small interview will be conducted on IRC as part of the ASF's evaluation
