Subject Good vs Evil? Maybe I'm looking at this from a skewed perspective?

Hmmm I had forgotten about the .getGeneratedKeys().

The reason I'm following up on this post is the URL that you point to in your 

Its a great resource, but something I saw caught my eye and I was thinking 
about it while I was out walking the doggies....

From the IBM web site:
"	IBM® Cloudscape™ is a relational database management system that is based on 	
	Java™ and SQL. Cloudscape is a commercial release of the Apache Software 	
	Foundation's (ASF) open source relational database project. The Apache 
	project is called Derby.

	The Cloudscape product includes Derby without any modification whatsoever to 
	the underlying source code. Cloudscape includes the same core Derby engine 
	but provides a few features you won't find in the Derby software such as 
	installers (with a JRE) and translated manuals and error messages. In 
	addition, technical support is available for purchase for the Cloudscape 
	product through IBM.
This kind of confused me for a sec.

Is IBM continuing to release/resell Cloudscape?
Does it mean that Cloudscape will match Derby in fixes or will IBM make 
corrections to Cloudscape that are not going to be made to Derby?

Just looking for some clarification.
