Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-616) create index can fail under the SecurityManager when trying to access files in the tmp folder of a database
Date Sat, 11 Feb 2006 22:43:28 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-616?page=comments#action_12366041 ] 

Myrna van Lunteren commented on DERBY-616:

DERBY-943 is most likely related to this issue. 
See also the mail archives: 

So, For 'fixing' the nightly failure issue of DERBY-943, I will add the read, write, delete
java.io.FilePermission to derby_tests.policy for the syscatdb/tmp dir (and under) in the derbynet.jar
section. When this (DERBY-616) bug gets fixed, that section should also be taken out, and
syscat.sql should be confirmed to work successfully with ibm142 jvm.

>     Priority: Critical

> Seen in tests lang/wisconsin.sql and jdbcapi/maxfieldsize.java when running with the
network server and the new security policy file that grants permisions on a per-jar basis.
Unless permission is given to the network serve code (since it is in the stack) to access
temp files in the database the test will fail.
>   permission java.io.FilePermission "${derby.system.home}${/}wombat${/}tmp${/}-", "read,
write, delete";
> Most likely the temp files are being accessed in without a privileged block.
> Easy to reproduce once the new policy file changes are checked in (see http://wiki.apache.org/db-derby/SecurityManagerTesting)
by removing the permission in the derby_tests.policy  file and running these tests using the
jar files.
