Objective: Facilitate evaluation of the new features added to 10.4.

'Buddy Testing', wherein contributors test Derby 10.4 features added by other members. Each contributor is encouraged to signup for testing and providing feedback on multiple features. A single feature can also have multiple buddy testers, the more the better.

The test scenarios could be, functionality testing, integration testing, stress/load testing etc. using the newly added features in 10.4. Tests should include documentation review, both javadoc and user documentation where applicable. It would be great if any (junit) test written could be contributed back to Derby so that others can run and expand them.

The 10.4.1.3 Release Candidate jars are available for testing here.
