Subject [jira] Resolved: (DERBY-4706) Remove stale and potentially unused code Request.writeEncryptedScalarStream
Date Mon, 21 Jun 2010 13:21:22 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-4706?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Kristian Waagan resolved DERBY-4706.
------------------------------------

    Fix Version/s: 10.7.0.0
       Resolution: Fixed

I do plan to back-port this issue after verification, because the client-side only fix for
DERBY-1595 depends on it (just for a clean merge, not functionally).

> The code in net.Request.writeEncryptedScalarStream() is in a bad state, for instance:
>  - it materializes the stream
>  - it doesn't support streams longer than Integer.MAX_VALUE
>    (this is fine for BLOB since Derby limits the LOB size to 2G-1, but for CLOBs the
data stream may be longer since the length is expressed in characters)
>  - in some error situations it causes a disconnect
> Since the security mechanisms required to run this code (SECMEC_EUSRIDDTA and  SECMEC_EUSRPWDDTA)
are apparently supported in the client but not in the network server, deleting it seems like
a good option considering its state.
