Google Summer of Code is on!

The Google Summer of Code
is officially on, and the Apache Derby project got three great
students to work with us. This was my first time participating in
this, and it was interesting, somewhat chaotic, a bit confusing, but
it was also great to work with all these other open-sourcers on
pulling this all together. Kudos for Google for managing this, and
it's also great to see how many open source projects are going on out
there.


For Derby we have Ramin Moazeni working on writing a migration
tool from MySQL to Derby, Gokul Soundarajan working on improving the
algorithim for the LRU cache manager, and Sanket Sharma working on
adding JMX support to Derby. If you're interested, you can find out
more about these projects and their ongoing status at
