Mohamed Nufail commented on DERBY-5674:


I am a final year undergraduate of University of Moratuwa, Sri Lanka. I would like to contribute
to Derby under GSoC 2012. Currently I am getting familiar with Derby. I hope to go through
the suggestions provided and come up with a schedule for the tests.

Thank You.

Foundation. As I did last year, I'm offering to mentor a student again this year, this time
for a different project.
> 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

> - 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 process.
