Server guide refers to phantom property in template policy file for the Network Server
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: DERBY-3322
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-3322
             Project: Derby
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Documentation
    Affects Versions: 10.3.2.1, 10.3.1.4
         Environment: N/A
            Reporter: John H. Embretsen
            Assignee: John H. Embretsen
            Priority: Trivial
             Fix For: 10.4.0.0


The Server and Administration guide contains a section about customizing the Network Server's
security policy, based on the template policy:

http://db.apache.org/derby/docs/dev/adminguide/tadminnetservcustom.html

This section mentions that the variable ${derby.security.host} should be replaced with a suitable
value.
 
However, the template policy, at /demo/templates/server.policy (released binaries) or java/drda/org/apache/derby/drda/template.policy
(SVN codeline), does not refer to any variable or property called ${derby.security.host}.
Instead, the policy file specifies the wildcard address, with appropriate comments:

<quote>
// Accept connections from any host. Derby is listening to the host
// interface specified via the -h option to "NetworkServerControl
// start" on the command line, via the address parameter to the
// org.apache.derby.drda.NetworkServerControl constructor in the API
// or via the property derby.drda.host; the default is localhost.
// You may want to restrict allowed hosts, e.g. to hosts in a specific
// subdomain, e.g. "*.acme.com".

  permission java.net.SocketPermission "*", "accept";
</quote>
