    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-3610?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12699055#action_12699055

Hiranya Jayathilaka commented on DERBY-3610:

Looks like the error messages generated contains schema information causing the assertions
on message text to fail. I'll fix this up asap and provide a patch. Thanks for pointing this

> When the wrong keyword is used in a grant execute privilege statement, the error message
> leads one the believe the identifier is neither a procedure or a function, when in deed
it is one of the two.
> > create function bc(i int) returns int language java parameter style java external
name 'java.lang.Integer.bitCount' no sql;
> > grant execute on procedure bc to foo;
> ERROR 42Y03: 'BC' is not recognized as a function or procedure.
> > grant execute on function bc to foo;
> (works)
> The reason is that the error message is generic. It would be better to have an error
message for each case.
