Hi Rory and Dalibor,

I won't be attending FOSDEM next month, so I'm afraid I won't see you.

I have taken build 151 for a test-drive. I'd hoped that it would fix the 
problems which surfaced in build 148.

Unfortunately, build 151 does not fix the following problem which 
surfaced in build 148: the failure of our test harness to find the 
derbyall suite. The problem seems to be that the Java 9 class loader no 
longer finds resources which the Java 8 class loader can locate. The 
following sample program demonstrates this problem. Compile this program 
with jdk 8 and put the derby jars on your classpath. This is the output 
when you run the program on jdk 8...

input stream = 
sun.net.www.protocol.jar.JarURLConnection$JarURLInputStream@3f99bd52

...and this is the output when you run the program on jdk 9...

input stream = null

Here is the program:

public class Derby6856_MissingResource
{
   public static void main(String... args) throws Exception
   {
     String resourceName = 
"/org/apache/derbyTesting/functionTests/suites/derbyall.properties";
     Class dummyClass = (new Object()).getClass();
     Object is = dummyClass.getResourceAsStream(resourceName);

     System.out.println("input stream = " + is);
   }
}

It appears that resource resolution has changed significantly in the 
recent builds of JDK 9. I expect that this change will be an unwelcome 
surprise to many users. I have a couple questions:

1) Is this new behavior a bug?

2) Is there a recommended workaround?

Thanks,
-Rick
