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.

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

Thanks, Knut. I think (1) or (2) would be adequate and I incline more toward (1). I don't
see much value in the procedural api since there is another way to change the boot password.
Given the escaping issues, I think that this procedural api is a little hokey. Does (2) support
an important use-case?

> 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'.
