Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-2466) Allow dynamic reloading of the security policy file
Date Fri, 23 Mar 2007 18:10:32 GMT

Daniel John Debrunner commented on DERBY-2466:
----------------------------------------------

M      java/drda/org/apache/derby/drda/server.policy

   Add getPolicy() privilege to the Basic policy file loaded by the secure server.


Why is this needed. The builtin policy cannot change, so why is there any need to re-load
it?

> The spec attached to DERBY-2109 describes how to allow the policy file to be dynamically
reloaded while a server is running: We add a getPolicy permission to the Basic policy and
we add a DBA-owned system procedure, SYSCS_UTIL.SYSCS_REFRESH_SECURITY_POLICY(), which reloads
the policy file. This JIRA tracks that work.
