Thanks Laura for the updates. Changes in derby1622_html5.zip look good and can be committed.

> 1)
> In Reference Manual:Section: Setting attributes for the database connection url
> Add the following attribute:
> encryptionKey=key
> Function
> Specifies the key to use for encrypting a new database or booting an existing encrypted
database. The application 
> provides the encryption key. 
> Combining with other attributes
> When creating a new database, must be combined with create=true and dataEncryption=true.
When booting an existing 
> encrypted database, the encryptionAlgorithm is also required to be specified if the algorithm
used when creating the 
> database was not the default algorithm. The default encryption algorithm used by Derby
is DES/CBC/NoPadding.
> -- create a new, encrypted database
> jdbc:derby:newDB;create=true;dataEncryption=true;encryptionAlgorithm=DES/CBC/NoPadding;encryptionKey=6162636465666768
> -- boot an encrypted database
> jdbc:derby:encryptedDB;encryptionKey=6162636465666768

> Developers Guide:
> http://db.apache.org/derby/docs/dev/devguide/tdevdvlp40140.html
> This should say , Booting an encrypted database.
> This section should also mention the encryptionKey attribute. 
> http://db.apache.org/derby/docs/dev/devguide/cdevcsecure60146.html 
> This section should also mention the encryptionKey attribute.
> Something like change this line from
> "Once you have created an encrypted database, you must supply the boot password to reboot
> to
> "If you have created an encrypted database using the bootPassword, then you  must supply
the boot password to reboot it. If you have created an encrypted database using the encryptionKey,
then you must supply the encryptionKey to reboot it"
> The example should also include the example to boot using the encryptionKey.
> For example, to access an encrypted database called encryptedDB, created with the encryptionKey
c566bab9ee8b62a5ddb4d9229224c678 and with encryptionAlgorithm=AES/CBC/NoPadding, you would
use the following connection URL:
> jdbc:derby:encryptedDB;encryptionAlgorithm=AES/CBC/NoPadding;encryptionKey=c566bab9ee8b62a5ddb4d9229224c678
