Rick Hillegas updated DERBY-866:
--------------------------------

    Attachment: derby-866-01-ab-sysusers.diff

Attaching derby-866-01-ab-sysusers.diff. This second rev of the patch adds some additional
tests, including an upgrade test.

Adds the following tests:

1) Verifies that you can't use views to subvert the authorization checks on SYSUSERS.

2) Verifies that SYSUSERS is created by hard-upgrade but not by soft-upgrade.

I ran the upgrade tests against the following list of old releases. I did not see any errors
other than the ones which appear without this patch:

10.0.2.1
10.1.1.0
10.1.2.1
10.1.3.1
10.2.1.6

> Proposal to enhance Derby's Built-In DDL User Management. (See proposal spec attached
to the JIRA).
> Abstract:
> This feature aims at improving the way BUILT-IN users are managed in Derby by providing
a more intuitive and familiar DDL interface. Currently (in 10.1.2.1), Built-In users can be
defined at the system and/or database level. Users created at the system level can be defined
via JVM or/and Derby system properties in the derby.properties file. Built-in users created
at the database level are defined via a call to a Derby system procedure (SYSCS_UTIL.SYSCS_SET_DATABASE_PROPERTY)
which sets a database property.
> Defining a user at the system level is very convenient and practical during the development
phase (EOD) of an application - However, the user's password is not encrypted and consequently
appears in clear in the derby.properties file. Hence, for an application going into production,
whether it is embedded or not, it is preferable to create users at the database level where
the password is encrypted.
> There is no real ANSI SQL standard for managing users in SQL but by providing a more
intuitive and known interface, it will ease Built-In User management at the database level
as well as Derby's adoption.
