             Summary: Switch to Maven for building Apache Derby
                 Key: DERBY-6645
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-6645
             Project: Derby
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Build tools
    Affects Versions:
            Reporter: Moritz Hoffmann

For a new user building Derby is very hard. It does not follow established Java project structures
and requires a lot of prior knowledge. Also the documentation is rather short. Especially
running the tests is non-intuitive at the beginning. Thus, I propose that Derby switches to
building using Maven and restructures its components in a cleaner way. Testing should be revised
to produce reproducible results. This would make development and testing much easier and more
