Yes, definitely worth testing now. There  has been a great deal of code 
change in the past year that might affect users.     The optimizer 
changes are one area but there are lots of others too.  Exceptions have 
changed significantly in the client.  With the introduction of JDBC 4.0, 
  I am guessing DatabaseMetaData and ResultSetMetaData are high risk 
areas for any application that depends on them. Also I think that LOBS 
are another area were folks should definitely test after significant 
changes like DERBY-326/DERBY-721.

Our known list of changes that may affect existing applications is at:

I have not done a complete pass of the changes and think there are 
probably more.

One interesting thing to look at to identify other risk areas is  the 
results of running the 10.1 tests against 10.2.  Just by scanning the 
new output you might spot something that will affect your app.

 You can see these test results at:
For example in connectionJdbc20 you can see the new exception for
