Subject [jira] Created: (DERBY-3488) Add functional (ie user level) tests for system privileges

Add functional (ie user level) tests for system privileges

                 Key: DERBY-3488
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-3488
             Project: Derby
          Issue Type: Sub-task
          Components: Test
            Reporter: Daniel John Debrunner

Having worked through committing a significant portion of patch12 from DERBY-2109 it seems
that it contained no functional tests related to the functionality it is implementing. I'm
basing this on the fact that all test code changes are applied and all pass with the functionality

So having tests that ensured:

 - users with invalid authentication can not shut a network server down
 - granting permissions (shutdown server, engine & create database) to specific principals
works (and disallows principals without th permission)

is really key for a security feature.
