Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-19) NPE when trying to create a database at a directory that is not allowed

       Body:
A solution to Jan's concern about the ability to create databases anywhere is to use the Java
2 security manager. Then the policy file for the JVM running Derby can limit Derby's file
access as required.

Description:
Opening this bug on behalf of Daniel Debrunner

--------------------------------------------------------------
This bug occurs in embedded Derby and Derby Network Server. In Derby Network Server, it might
be best for a security exception to be thrown when trying to create a database at a disallowed
directory (SQLSTATE 38000).

This bug can be reproduced in IJ like so:
(if your 'D' drive is an inaccessible disk. e.g. your CD-ROM)
ij> connect 'jdbc:derby:d:/wombat2;create=true';
ERROR XJ041: Failed to create database 'd:/wombat2'
