Thanks Mark, this example helps a lot. I have one further question, taking the following Derby
example:
----
The portion of the functionTests under 'nist' was originally
developed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST),
an agency of the United States Department of Commerce, and adapted by
International Business Machines Corporation in accordance with the NIST
Software Acknowledgment and Redistribution document at
http://www.itl.nist.gov/div897/ctg/sql_form.htm
-----
When you put it in the Geronimo context, this is unclear where the above mentioned "functionTests"
is used, does it matter? When you look at the meta NOTICE file, the provenance of Geronimo
depends on Derby and Derby bundles some software which has functionTests is lost. Just want
to make sure, if this is intended. 

Thanks,
Suresh
