      Derby -bin distributions

      Description

      Currently in trunk, there are 8 demo (sub)directories in the demo/programs directory scheduled to be included in -bin distributions, each containing one or more demo or sample applications:

      localcal/
      nserverdemo/
      scores/
      simple/
      simplemobile/
      toursdb/
      vtis/
      workingwithderby/

      With a -bin distribution of Derby, a user should be able to get an overview of the included demo program offering by opening demo/programs/readme.html in a web browser (there is a link to this from the top-level index.html file). In trunk, we are currently missing short descriptions of and links to:

      Each of these demos have a README file in their respective subdirectories, that could easily be linked to.*

      The remaining 5 demos are accessible from and described by the readme.html file (readme.html is a frameset; the actual references and descriptions are in navbar.html and demo.html. These files are placed in the java/demo directory in the source tree).

      *)
      Also, one should make sure that the README files and other instructions are suitable for -bin distributions, not only -src distributions or SVN working copies. Otherwise, these particular demos should not be included in -bin distributions. For example both localcal/README, scores/README and vtis/README currently refer to build scripts that are not scheduled for inclusion in -bin distros.
