Message XCY05 for NATIVE authentication is (too?) complex

                 Key: DERBY-5657
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-5657
             Project: Derby
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Services
    Affects Versions:
            Reporter: Kristian Waagan
            Priority: Minor

The error message XCY05 is rather complex:
Invalid change of the derby.authentication.provider property. Once set to NATIVE authentication,
this property cannot be changed. NATIVE::LOCAL is the only NATIVE value accepted by derby.authentication.provider.
This property cannot be set to NATIVE::LOCAL unless credentials for the database owner have
been stored in the database using the syscs_util.syscs_create_user procedure.

I'd be in favor of simplifying this error message if possible, especially raising a more specific
message for the error condition when the DBO hasn't been added as a user.
Further, it was not clear to me that the information about derby.authentication.provider applies
when setting it as a database property only.
Is this message trying to describe three problem scenarios?
 a) Turning off NATIVE authentication is forbidden.
 b) Specifying an invalid value for derby.authentication.provider when set as a database property.
 c) Missing credentials for the DBO.
