Rick Hillegas commented on DERBY-2196:
--------------------------------------

Thanks for the quick feedback, Dan. I don't think having two properties is going to be that
confusing, although I agree that it is overkill for most users. I'm content to go with two
properties right now. If we feel the need to sand this down later, we can revisit this decision.

> From an e-mail discussion:
> ... Derby should match the security  provided by typical client server systems such as
DB2, Oracle, etc. I 
> think in this case system/database owners are trusting the database 
> system to ensure that their system cannot be attacked. So maybe if Derby 
> is booted as a standalone server with no security manager involved, it 
> should install one with a default security policy. Thus allowing Derby 
> to use Java security manager to manage system privileges but not 
> requiring everyone to become familiar with them.
> http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/db-derby-dev/200612.mbox/%3c4582FE67.7040308@apache.org%3e
> I imagine such a policy would allow any access to databases under derby.system.home and/or
user.home.
> By standalone I mean the network server was started though the main() method (command
line).
