Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-3322) Server guide refers to phantom property in template policy file for the Network Server
Date Wed, 12 Mar 2008 07:00:46 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-3322?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12577734#action_12577734

Andrew McIntyre commented on DERBY-3322:

hi John, I'll take a look tomorrow and see if I can figure out why my automated copy is not
updating the files. The copy process itself is not reporting any errors, but maybe there are
permissions problems on people.apache.org that are preventing the files from being updated.

>             Project: Derby
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Documentation
>    Affects Versions:,
>         Environment: N/A
>            Reporter: John H. Embretsen

>             Fix For:
>         Attachments: d3322v01.diff, tadminnetservcustom.html
> 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>
