Derby 10.3 is available in beta, and will be released GA by the time NetBeans 6 goes GA. We should make sure the db
module works with Derby 10.3.
Derby 10.3 beta can be downloaded here: http://people.apache.org/~myrnavl/10.3.1.0.beta/
Reassigned to new owner.
I'm running netbeans 8.0.1 against derby 10.9 (the version bundled with glassfish 4.1) without problems.
