Hi Myrna,

To generate all the bits, you'll need a Java 8 JDK which has no legal 
encumbrances. For this purpose, I had to build OpenJDK 8 from scratch 
Note that you can't generate a Derby release by using Oracle's early 
access builds of JDK 8. That is because of restrictions in the early 
access license.

Let me know if you need assistance here.
