Bryan Pendleton commented on DERBY-6164:
----------------------------------------

Hello, Ahsan, I am glad to hear you are interested in Derby. 

Here are several ways to learn more about Derby:
1) Download a recent copy of Derby and go through the tutorials:  http://db.apache.org/derby/docs/10.9/getstart/cgstutorialintro.html
2) Download the Derby source code from subversion, and follow the instructions to be able
to build the code and run the test suites: http://db.apache.org/derby/dev/derby_source.html
3) Install the Emma tool and run one of the Derby test suites using Emma: http://wiki.apache.org/db-derby/CodeCoverageWithEMMA?highlight=%28Emma%29%7C%28Derby%29

Do you get the same code coverage results as the automated runs at http://dbtg.foundry.sun.com/derby/test/coverage/?

If not, in which area are your coverage results different?

>            Reporter: Bryan Pendleton

> 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. 
> The Derby project conducted this effort last year, and substantial improvements were
made.
> We are looking to continue this process this year, as there are still areas of the Derby
code base where code coverage could be substantially improved.
> 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 via email as part of the
ASF's evaluation process.
