Derby Developer's Guide -  Issues w/ User authentication and authorization extended examples
section/paragraph
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: DERBY-1823
                 URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-1823
             Project: Derby
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Documentation
    Affects Versions: 10.1.1.0
            Reporter: Francois Orsini
            Priority: Minor


There is a couple of issues with the paragraph/section  "User authentication and authorization
extended examples" in the developer's guide
http://db.apache.org/derby/docs/10.2/devguide/rdevcsecure26537.html

1) The methods turnOnBuiltInUsers() & turnOffBuiltInUsers() do NOT shutdown and reboot
the database for which the 'derby.connection.requireAuthentication' authentication database
property is being set - as this last one is a derby static property, it will not be taken
into account until the database is rebooted (or the whole derby engine instance). Hence, the
2 checks for "Confirming requireAuthentication" is misleading as the property value is changed
_but_ the actual database authentication enabling/disabling has not changed since it was last
booted. Database needs to be shutdown and rebooted after 'derby.connection.requireAuthentication'
is set and then some negative testing of invalid user connection needs to be added to show
that only valid users can connect (in the case, authentication is being enabled).

2) Paragraph (extended examples section) also needs to be moved at the same level as the 2
above such as:
  "User authentication example in a single-user, embedded environment"
  http://db.apache.org/derby/docs/10.2/devguide/rdevcsecure125.html
  "User authentication example in a client/server environment"
  http://db.apache.org/derby/docs/10.2/devguide/rdevcsecure13713.html

since the extended examples (once fixed - see 1)) can be applied in both a client-server and
embedded environments context.
