      Description

      The "SQL Syntax" topic in the Getting Started guide (http://db.apache.org/derby/docs/10.10/getstart/rgsdocs10012.html) does not describe the curly braces ("{ }") as they are actually used in syntax statements, where they actually group required items, normally so choices can be separated by vertical bars ("|"). This should be corrected.

      I also plan to adopt the suggestion made in DERBY-6121 that the topic be added to the Reference Manual, where syntax is most used.

      Does anything else in the topic need fixing? I am confused by the statement that the asterisk "has a special meaning in some SQL statements." What special meaning can it have other than marking repeatable items?
