I am wondering if some of this problem is dependent on how you build - jdk14 or jdk15/6; sane vs insane; and how you organize your jars in the classpath.

Andrew McIntyre updated DERBY-892:

   Attachment: derby-892_pre.diff

Attached is a patch which updates derby_tests.policy if there is a {test}.policy in the functionTests/tests dir for this test. Included is a sample policy for derbynet/sysinfo.java. The patch is not ready to be committed, but I thought I would put it out there for others to review.

However, I can't seem to get  derbynet/sysinfo.java to fail (or pass) in any of the ways that I'm expecting at the moment and its driving me slightly insane. For instance, I can't get the test to fail as expected by removing the permissions noted in DERBY-622 (along with those added by Rick for 955), the circumstances mentioned in DERBY-1129, and the locale jar files output fails to appear even though I've granted the permissions noted in DERBY-622 which allowed the test to pass before. Maybe the jvm on Mac OS X is just not cooperating. I'll try it on Windows later.

The name is a left over from when the policy file was only used for/by network server, and should be renamed - derbyTestPolicyFile, for instance. It is not used anywhere at present, and not specific to network server. It would be nice if this could be expanded, or, if not used, removed.
