Thanks for the reply.. You are right
.. we are just getting started. We are just developing some very minor
feature enhancements like developing mathematical, Logical and general

development community and see how it goes..

Re: Query on Source Code Submission
Derby welcomes students to the community. The normal process for
get involved and contribute code is to join the derby development
commmunity, submit contributor license agreements, and submit incremental
patches for the work. All the while the students will be able to
and get feedback from the Derby development community during the process.
If there is some large chunk of existing work that you want to contribute
then I think that would involve a grant which I don't know too much about,
but is much more complicated I think and involves lawyers. From a Derby
community perspective might be tough to digest all at once especially if
touches a lot of existing code.
I am hoping you and your students are just getting started with your work
and fall into the first category.
I would suggest that you read about the community  and
the derby developers list  if you have not already. Assuming it is all
with IBM, approach the list regarding the technical details of the
improvements you and your students would like to make. I look
hearing you on derby-dev.
