--------------------------------------

             Summary: Improve Derby's Code Coverage - GSoC 2013 Project
                 Key: DERBY-6164
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-6164
             Project: Derby
          Issue Type: Task
            Reporter: Bryan Pendleton
            Priority: Minor


This year's edition of Google Summer of Code includes, once again, the Apache Software Foundation.

For the Derby project, I'm offering to mentor a student on the tasks described here.

For this project, you are 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 desired. 

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 - important 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
process.
