Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-1054) Starting Derby with the NetServlet inside of tomcat does not allow binding to non localhost interface.

Daniel John Debrunner commented on DERBY-1054:
----------------------------------------------

Just to confirm, the host parameter could only be changed from the server side, right?
Ie. allowing a URL that changed the host would be a security issue.

> I like the idea of using the NetServlet with the derby.war file inside of tomcat to allow
Tomcat to start and stop my derby database.  This makes it quite easy for some of our less
than technical users.   However, the NetServlet.java file appears to have "localhost" hard
coded as the startup host.  This forced Derby to start listening ONLY on 127.0.0.1.  I tried
passing the -Dderby.drda.host parameter through the java startup of Tomcat, but it doesn't
appear to have any affect.  Ideally, the NetServlet.java class should allow for a "host" parameter
to be passed in via the web.xml file.  That way we can easily control the listening interface.
