> The Derby source code repository contains jakarta-oro-2.0.8.jar in the tools/java directory.
This jar file provides regex functionality used by the Sed class in the old test harness.
> Modern JDK versions include the java.util.regex package, which provides similar functionality.
The Jakarta ORO project is retired and has been moved to the Apache Attic.
> We should change the implementation of the Sed class to use java.util.regex instead of
Jakarta ORO because:
> - it reduces the number of binaries in the source code repository
> - java.util.regex is a maintained library, ORO is not
