When a privilege is revoked at table level, Derby should only drop objects that require that
particular privilege and not all the objects that require some form of privilege on that table.

                 Key: DERBY-1782
                 URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-1782
             Project: Derby
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: SQL
    Affects Versions: 10.2.1.0
            Reporter: Mamta A. Satoor


Views/triggers/constraints can depend on different privileges at table level. As per SQL specification,
if the required privilege is revoked, the dependent objects(Views, triggers and constraints)
should get dropped automatically. Derby 10.2 supports this partially. In Derby 10.2, when
any granted privilege is revoked at a table level, all the objects(views, triggers and constraints)
that require any kind of privilege on that table get dropped. 
eg
user1
create table t1
grant select, update on t1 to user2
user2
create view v1 as select * from user1.t1 -- this view requires SELECT privilege on user1.t1
and doesn't rely on UPDATE privilege on user1.t1
user1
revoke update on t1 from user2 -- in Derby 10.2, this ends up dropping the view user2.v1 even
though it does not rely on that particular privilege on user1.t1

Similar behavior exists for column level privileges. When a privilege is revoked at column
level, we should only drop objects that require that privilege on that particular column list.
In Derby 10.2, we end up dropping all the objects that rely on that privilege type even though
they do not require the particular columns on which privilege is getting revoked. 
eg
user1
create table t1(c11 int, c12 int, c13 int)
grant select(c11,c12) on t1 to user2
user2
create view v1 as select c11 from user1.t1 
-- the view above requires SELECT privilege on column c11 in user1.t1 and doesn't rely on
SELECT privilege on column c12 in user1.t1
user1
revoke select(c12) on t1 from user2 
-- in Derby 10.2, the above revoke ends up dropping the view user2.v1 even though it does
not rely on SELECT privilege on column c12 in user1.t1

Both of these behavior manifest from how the permission related system tables are designed
and how Derby keeps the permission dependency information for the objects. Some solutions
for this problem are discussed in DERBY-1539.
