Hey Bryan,

Thanks for that feedback. Let's keep polishing this until we have 
something that's clear and compelling. Here is a second rev, which 
attempts to address your concerns.


The Apache Derby project is pleased to announce feature release

Apache Derby is a sub-project of the Apache DB project. Derby is a pure 
Java relational database engine which conforms to the ISO/ANSI SQL and 
JDBC standards. Derby aims to be easy for developers and end-users to 
work with.

Derby can be obtained from the Derby download site:

    http://db.apache.org/derby/derby_downloads.html. re-packages Derby as a set of JPMS modules. This introduces a 
new jar file, derbyshared.jar, required by all configurations. Existing 
users can continue to boot Derby with a classpath as they have always 
done. Applications will run as they did on older Derby versions.

Alternatively, users can now boot Derby with a module path. Doing so 
provides extra security by encapsulating (hiding) Derby's internal 
classes inside the new modules.

Via the JDK's jlink tool, the new Derby modules can be assembled into 
shrink-wrapped, footprint-optimized applications which deploy on 
platforms lacking a JVM--platforms like smart-phones and tablets.

Users who want to study Derby's module structure may consult the module 
diagrams in the 10.15 public API.

Please try out this new release.
