Change SystemPermission to be a two arguement permission with a name (object the permission
is on) and an action.

                 Key: DERBY-3491
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-3491
             Project: Derby
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Security
            Reporter: Daniel John Debrunner


With the additional system permissions proposed in DERBY-3462 I wonder if it makes sense to
change the style of names & actions in SystemPermission.

Today a "shutdown" name is proposed and potential for future "shutdownEngine" and "shutdownServer"
with no actions.

DERBY-3462 is proposing names of jmxControl, serverControl, engineControl etc also with no
actions.

Looking at the standard Permission class it seems the name is meant to represent an object
that the permission applies to and action represent actions on that object.
Thus it would seem to make more sense and be consistent with other Permissions to have:

 name=server action=control | monitor | shutdown
 name=engine action=control | monitor | shutdown
 name=jmx action=control
