Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-1756) Revert change in client that defaults the secmec to eusridpwd.
Date Fri, 01 Sep 2006 18:13:23 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-1756?page=comments#action_12432195 ] 
Francois Orsini commented on DERBY-1756:

Looks good Sunitha - Just some minor comment...

In ClientBaseDataSource.java, I think it would be good to leave most of the logic around support
for EUSRIDPWD checks in the file as this would certainly get re-enabled once #1517 and #1755
are fixed...I believe they will still be valid, even if some logic is being moved around in
some other helper classes used during secmec handshake/negotiation . They can be left commented
out with a comment explaining why (such as mentioning JIRA-1517, JIRA-1755) - as I did in
my note  for the USRSSBPWD upgrade (commented out as well for now).

My IMPORTANT NOTE on USRSSBPWD upgrade comment is out of context if the 3 lines above (shown
below) are removed...as we will still try to upgrade to EUSRIDPWD if the client supports it
when it is re-enabled...

-            return (short)NetConfiguration.SECMEC_EUSRIDPWD;
-        else

Just some suggestion...meanwhile #1517 and #1755 are addressed....

> With changes to derby-962, the client would default to eusridpwd if the client jvm supports
it.  It is not sufficient to only check if client jvm can support eusridpwd  but we need to
verify if the server can support the particular secmec.  
> There are other existing jiras DERBY-1675,DERBY-1517,DERBY-1755 that will help to address
the issue of  upgrading to a better security mechanism.
> This jira will change the default security mechanism to 3 as it was before derby-962
