thanks for the link & input - interesting!
If Oracle would agree to donate the existing 286 TCK to Apache, it would
give us a big leg up in our TCK effort, and I would be all for it. Sometime
back, I had approached the IBM folks in the EC with that exact idea, but at
that time, I was unable to make progress. If you can manage to move this
forward - super!!
Otherwise, my strong preference would be to rewrite the TCK from scratch on
Apache, even though it would be more work.
