Hi Myrna,

I don't think so. When Java 8 goes GA and people install it, they will 
want to study the Java 8 release notes for information about what's in 
JDBC 4.2. As far as I know, the Derby implementation is faithful to the 
JDBC 4.2 spec, so there are no discrepancies to document.

Thanks,
-Rick
