Subject [jira] Created: (DERBY-974) ClientDriver can lose some connection properties

ClientDriver can lose some connection properties

         Key: DERBY-974
         URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-974
     Project: Derby
        Type: Bug
  Components: Network Client  
 Environment: Linux, Sun JRE 1.5
    Reporter: Michael Hackett
    Priority: Minor

Internally, the ClientDriver class's appendDatabaseAttributes() method uses keys() on the
connection properties to get a list of the property names. However, this misses any properties
in the default set. The correct method for a Properties object is propertyNames(). This will
return the same type of object as keys(), but will include all properties.

(It is unfortunate that Sun chose to make Properties a subclass of Hashtable, instead of giving
Properties a Hashtable, as the former exposes too much implementation.)

The fix is to simply replace calls to keys() on all Property objects to use propertyNames().
A quick search revealed that this is not the only place in the code base where this is done,
so a more thorough scan should be made.
