Subject [jira] Created: (DERBY-963) Allow user friendly string values for security mechanism in client connection url.
Date Mon, 13 Feb 2006 10:15:24 GMT
Allow user friendly string values for security mechanism in client connection url. 
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

         Key: DERBY-963
         URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-963
     Project: Derby
        Type: Improvement
  Components: Newcomer, Network Client  
    Versions: 10.2.0.0, 10.0.2.2, 10.1.3.0, 10.1.2.3, 10.1.1.0, 10.1.1.1, 10.1.1.2, 10.1.2.0,
10.1.2.2, 10.0.2.1, 10.0.2.0, 10.1.2.1    
    Reporter: Sunitha Kambhampati
    Priority: Minor


Overview:
DRDA spec specifies the following secmec (securitymechanism) values.
USRIDONL = 4
USRIDPWD = 3
EUSRIDPWD = 9

Currently in the client url, one would have to pass in the integer value for securityMechanism.
e.g.
ij>connect 'testdb;securityMechanism=9;user=sa;password=p1';

when using the datasource, the setSecurityMechanism(int) on the ClientDataSource can be used.
Constants are
ClientDataSource.CLEAR_TEXT_PASSWORD_SECURITY (0x03)
ClientDataSource.USER_ONLY_SECURITY (0x04)
ClientDataSource.ENCRYPTED_USER_AND_PASSWORD_SECURITY (0x09)

Add support in client to recognize the user friendly names for the securityMechanism attribute.
The values that should be accepted are CLEAR_TEXT_PASSWORD_SECURITY, USER_ONLY_SECURITY, ENCRYPTED_USER_AND_PASSWORD_SECURITY.

--------
To ensure that the old applications that were written to pass in an integer value for securityMechanism
do not break with the new client , the client should probably support both the integer values
as well as the string values.
