Directory structure should look correct in all zips.

OK. Kristian found some missing files in the source distribution but they don't affect your ability to build docs and jars from the source distro, so the source distro looks correct to me. The lib and debug lib directories are fairly simple in structure and look correct to me. The bin distribution is complete enough to satisfy the top level links in index.html, and it looks correct to me.

Links should work in index.html in the bin distribution.

OK

bin scripts should work.

OK. Successfully ran NetworkServerControl, ij, dblook, startNetworkServer, stopNetworkServer, and sysinfo from the bin distribution on Mac OSX. Successfully ran the corresponding bat scripts on Windows XP.

No junk files like derby.log

No unnecessary 3rd party jars like Junit

OK

Rick

(./)

Source zip can be used to generate jars and docs

OK. Note that the copyright year in the docs defaults to be 2011. This was overridden by the release build so that the docs in the distribution have the correct copyright year (2012). We may want to make the docs build always default to the current year for the copyright date.
