Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-2796) Obscure error messages when using SSL in various combinations
Date Fri, 15 Jun 2007 15:53:26 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-2796?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#action_12505280

Dag H. Wanvik commented on DERBY-2796:

The patch looks good to me; the hint in the error messages will be
indeed helpful to understand what's going on if the user has

I notice that you had to remove localized versions of J131 "A PROTOCOL
Data Stream Syntax Error was detected.  Reason: 0x{0}."  since this is
now extended. For these locales this message will then fall back to

I did not run any tests to verify these changes.


* NetworkServerControlImpl
  - Modified lines > 80
  - Spurious blank diffs (lines 2288-2290)

I see you have updated the user docs and releaseNote.html of
DERBY-2108 accordingly, good! Some small comments on the latter:

> Summary of Change - SSL/TLS implemented for client/server
> communication. 

I would make the title more descriptive:

  "Summary of Change - Encryption of data traffic between client and
  server is now supported via SSL/TLS."

or some such.

> Rationale for Change - The messages had to be extended due to more
> failure scenarios when connecting a client to a Derby server.

I think this is the rationale for the changed error messages, not for
the issue's feature change which is introduction of SSL support.

I think the rationale here would be something like:

"Encryption of data traffic between client and server is a desired
security feature for Derby."

Another change not mentioned is that localized versions of J131 will
now fall back to English. You may want to add that, perhaps.

> I ran clients with various ssl configurations on their urls and startup options against
servers with various ssl configurations. I will attach an html file recording my results.
I feel that many of the error conditions raised diagnostics which were too obscure to be helpful.
I think this will be burdensome to tech support.
