Absolutely!  I really appreciate your arduous incremental work on the 
security manager testing.  Security Manager regression tests are 
extremely important because this, IMHO,  is a very regression prone 
area.  The regression  from 5.1.60 to 10.0 is clear evidence of that.

Excellent.  This is what I was hoping.

Sounds  good. 
Should I file a Jira issue to change permissions for JUnit testing to 
exclude  database file permissions for derbytools.jar and 
derbytesting.jar or is that already part of some existing issue/plan?
