I am not saying that a special client should be required. I just
think it should be possible for an DBA to change database
configuration without having to change the application.
If I were to set up Derby in an client/server environment, I would be
sceptical of allowing any client/application to boot and shut down
databases. It should be possible to require special authorization to
do such operations.
Yes and this usually what "Grant & Revoke" functionality enables
you to do at the "System Privileges" level (i.e. System /
Database start-up / shutdown operations).
