Document initiation of replication from cleanly shut down database

                 Key: DERBY-4196
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-4196
             Project: Derby
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Documentation, Replication
    Affects Versions:
            Reporter: Knut Anders Hatlen
            Priority: Minor

The admin guide describes how to start replication.

It describes two steps that must be performed before the database is copied from the master
to the slave:

1. Boot the database on the master system

Those two steps could be replaced with a single step:

1-2) Make sure the database on the master system is shut down cleanly

This works because then there is no recovery to be performed when the database later is booted
in master mode, and neither the log nor the database will be modified during boot, so the
master database will stay completely in sync with the slave.

Advantages with the alternative procedure are:

- no need to keep a process running with the database booted and frozen while copying the
database from the master system to the slave system

- uncommitted transactions that are active at the time of the copying won't cause any problems
