Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-5653) We should document that the NetServlet is a testing tool and not appropriate for production use.

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-5653?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13229406#comment-13229406

Kim Haase commented on DERBY-5653:
----------------------------------

I assume NetServlet == "the servlet interface", which is documented only in the Admin Guide.
The documentation itself consists of just a few topics, but there are references and cross-references
in a number of topics (listed below). Would it make sense to remove the references to it,
as well as to add warnings to the section where it is documented?

> The NetServlet does not require credentials in order to bring the server up and down
(or for any operations for that matter). See DERBY-5401. This lack of security makes the NetServlet
unsuited for production use. We should document that NetServlet is only appropriate for testing
purposes.
