Actually not. I tested this, and there needs to be defined at least
one user at the system level for a shutdown to work. So a more
precise wording would be:

"If you have enabled Derby's BUILTIN user authentication at the system
level (for example, by setting the property


in the derby.properties file), you will need to specify credentials
(e.g. username and password) in order to shut down a Derby system
*and* the supplied username/password must also be defined at the
system level."

That works .
