Subject [jira] Updated: (DERBY-963) Allow user friendly string values for security mechanism in client connection url.
Date Fri, 30 Jun 2006 21:59:31 GMT
     [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-963?page=all ]

Anders Morken updated DERBY-963:
--------------------------------

    Attachment: DERBY-963-code-v1.patch

This (DERBY-963-code-v1.patch) is a first take at enabling more user friendly security mechanism
names in the connection properties. Needs regression tests and doc updates to be of any value
to users, though - but if someone takes a look at it and decides whether this is the right
way to do it and the right place to do it that would be useful anyway. =)

> 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.
