Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-4795) Starting network server with -ssl turns SSL off
Date Thu, 02 Jun 2011 19:15:47 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-4795?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13043000#comment-13043000

Tiago R. Espinha commented on DERBY-4795:

I think this behavior is logical. Usually in usage descriptions, square brackets mean an optional
argument and the diamond symbols mean something that is mandatory. Looking at the -ssl switch,
the mode is mandatory.

suites.All has passed and no one has objected to this change, so I committed this patch with
revision 1130743.

@ Siddharth, I'm going to resolve this issue. When this changes get captured by the daily
regression runs, and provided that everything goes well, please go ahead and close it.

> 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.
