Rick Hillegas commented on DERBY-5522:
--------------------------------------

Hi Kim,

Some more responses:

>So if you use ij with NATIVE authentication, you have to start it with JVM args or a derby.properties
file? 

Right. If you want Derby to mark the database as a credentials DB and put the  DBO's credentials
into SYS.SYSUSERS, then you need to specify derby.authentication.provider=NATIVE:myDB:LOCAL
(in command line properties or derby.properties) before you create the database. This is true
for any application, including ij. There's no special logic for ij.

>I was also going to mention that I am planning to add the material from the spec that
follows "Here's how Derby treats these new values for derby.authentication.provider:" to the
Developer's Guide topic cdevcsecurenativeauth (Using NATIVE authentication). I was going to
put it in the derby.authentication.provider reference topic, but I don't think it really fits
there -- it seems more conceptual.

This sounds good to me. If there's a pointer from the reference topic back to "Using NATIVE
authentication" then all bases are covered.

>I'm omitting the "Old databases" bullet because that seems more appropriate for the release
notes -- does that make sense? 

Agreed. Thanks!

on DERBY-866. The documentation changes are described by the functional spec UserManagement.html
