Subject [jira] Created: (DERBY-709) SecurityException thrown when passing a relative path name when backing up database

SecurityException thrown when passing a relative path name when backing up database
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

         Key: DERBY-709
         URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-709
     Project: Derby
        Type: Bug
  Components: Store, Security  
    Versions: 10.0.2.0, 10.1.1.0, 10.2.0.0    
    Reporter: Daniel John Debrunner
    Priority: Minor


CALL SYSCS_UTIL.SYSCS_BACKUP_DATABASE('extinout/bkup1');
ERROR 38000: The exception 'java.security.AccessControlException: access denied
(java.util.PropertyPermission user.dir read)' was thrown while evaluating an exp
ression)

Can be seen in the store/encryptionKey.sql test, modify the _app.properties file to enable
the security manager.

Due to logging messages using File.getCanonicalPath in RawStore.java, lines 675 and 686.

Possible solutions:
  - use a privileged block and required user.dir permission granted to user.dir to backup
to a relative directory
  - use a privileged block,if a security exception is thrown then just display the relative
name, otherwise display the full name. This would allow backups to succeed without requiring
granting additional permissions to derby.jar
  - just log the relative path
