Rick Hillegas updated DERBY-2196:
---------------------------------

    Attachment: derby-2196-01-print-02.diff

Thanks for the quick review, John!

The need to set derby.system.home and derby.drda.host is expected. I should have pointed that
out. A follow-on patch will set those variables if they aren't already set.

Thanks for catching the problems with running the policy-printer from derbyrun.jar and derbynet.jar
standalone.  have come up with what looks like a simpler way to find the target codebases.
The improved scheme should work for more cases.

I am attaching rev 2 of this patch: derby-2196-01-print-02.diff.

> 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).
