Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-4328) The Developer's Guide falsely claims that you can use SYSCS_UTIL.SYSCS_SET_DATABASE_PROPERTY to change the boot password on an encrypted database.

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-4328?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12744662#action_12744662

Rick Hillegas commented on DERBY-4328:
--------------------------------------

Thanks, Knut. I agree that the code supporting (2) should be left in place for compatibility
reasons. I think that the escaping issue involving the semicolon is a general issue for all
components of the connection url. If that issue isn't documented somewhere, I agree that we
should address it in such a way that we cover all of those components. I don't think I understand
the race condition: are you worried that the dbo will try to change the boot password to two
different values simultaneously?

> This claim is made in the section titled 'Changing the boot password'. If you try to
run the example, you get this error:
> CALL SYSCS_UTIL.SYSCS_SET_DATABASE_PROPERTY( 'bootPassword', 'Thursday' , 'Saturday');
> ERROR 42Y03: 'SYSCS_UTIL.SYSCS_SET_DATABASE_PROPERTY' is not recognized as a function
or procedure.
> The correct way to change the boot password is documented earlier on in the section titled
'Encrypting databases with a new boot password'. We should remove the section titled 'Changing
the boot password'.
