Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-2361) Documentation should give examples for using the different security mechanisms
Date Wed, 21 Feb 2007 23:29:06 GMT

Kim Haase commented on DERBY-2361:

Thanks for clarifying that, Andrew.

I realized I'll also need to create a new topic in the Reference Manual for the securityMechanism
attribute, under "Setting attributes for the database connection URL". I think the details
on the attribute, along with an example, can go there, with a cross-reference to it from cadminapps49914.

Also, on a slightly different subject, one of the topics under cadminapps49914 is "Enabling
the encrypted user ID and password security mechanism". It says that in order to use this
mechanism you need "IBM JCE (Java Cryptography Extension) 1.2.1 or later", but it doesn't
say how to get this if you don't already have it. Should this be a separate JIRA issue?

> The Derby Server and Administration guide talks about the different security mechanisms,
but does not give examples of how these can be used via connection URLs, it only mentions
the client DataSource field names. 
> http://db.apache.org/derby/docs/10.2/adminguide/cadminapps49914.html
> The documentation should give examples of how to use the different security mechanisms
via connection URLs, and perhaps an example of how the client field names would be used programmatically.
