Subject [jira] Created: (DERBY-2925) Prevent export from overwriting existing files

Prevent export from overwriting existing files

                 Key: DERBY-2925
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-2925
             Project: Derby
          Issue Type: Sub-task
          Components: Security, Tools
    Affects Versions:,,,
            Reporter: Kathey Marsden

Export should not overwrite existing files, but rather insist that the user remove them before
writing to the file.  This will help prevent accidental or intentional corruption of the database
with export.  This may introduce a compatibility issue with export but because export is usually
an attended utility and not typically invoked as part of an application, I think the risk
is worth the additional security this will provide.
