Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-4795) Starting network server with -ssl turns SSL off
Date Tue, 31 May 2011 12:05:47 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-4795?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13041544#comment-13041544

Siddharth Srivastava commented on DERBY-4795:


I too think a usage error would be appropriate as if some sort of default is there then either
we'll have to show a message that which sslmode has been used and user may not comply with

If we go with the usage error, in my opinion following error would be appropriate:

Error <Error Id>: Missing  <sslmode> argument
Usage:  -ssl <sslmode>
SSLMODE can be any of the following:
SSL_OFF:                                Turns off SSL. No SSL encryption would be used
SSL_BASIC:                             Use basic SSL Encryption
SSL_PEER_AUTHENTICATION: Use SSL Encryption with Peer Authentication

I am not very sure about the error id (is it possible to generate an error id ? )

Please share your opinion.

> If you start the network server with the -ssl option and no <sslmode> argument,
the server will be started in plain text mode.
> For example:
> java -jar derbynet.jar start -ssl
> If -ssl is specified without <sslmode>, I would have expected that SSL was enabled
(not sure which SSL mode, basic or peerAuthentication, is more appropriate) or that the command
failed because of the missing argument. Treating "-ssl" as an alias for "-ssl off" sounds
unintuitive to me.
