Subject [jira] Updated: (DERBY-1273) Sysinfo should print a better message when it gets Security Exceptions accessing classpath info when run under security manager
Date Wed, 09 Aug 2006 06:50:14 GMT
     [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-1273?page=all ]

Andrew McIntyre updated DERBY-1273:

    Assignee:     (was: Andrew McIntyre)

After examining the behavior with and without the patch I currently have attached to this
issue, I believe that the current behavior, without this patch, is desirable. With the patch,
there is no output at all which indicates that the JCC driver could not be accessed, regardless
of the permissions granted to sysinfo, and it appears that with the patch, there occurs some
unwanted behavior with the -cp options to sysinfo where some output which previously reported
useful security exceptions will fail silently and report success at the end.

I believe that the release note attached to DERBY-688 covers the problem reported with this
issue. I would appreciate it if the reporter could close this issue if they agree with that

> If sysinfo does not have getProtectionDomain privileges it cannot get some information
during classpath handling.  
> When this occurs it prints   Java Security Exceptions in the output e.g.
> JRE - JDBC: J2SE 1.4.2 - JDBC 3.0

> See DERBY-1229 notes.html for a complete explanation of the output.
> I am actually not sure what information is actually missing from sysinfo in this case
but  I  think it would be better if sysinfo just printed the classpath  and then printed a
generic warning with the information that it was not able to report rather than printing the
Security exceptions explicitly.
> This would be especially helpful for NetworkServerControl sysinfo because users are always
encouraged to run network server in security manager.
