Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-5636) Improve the overview of Derby's security mechanisms
Date Mon, 26 Mar 2012 19:10:34 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-5636?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13238691#comment-13238691

Kim Haase commented on DERBY-5636:
----------------------------------

This is odd -- I committed the patch 4+ hours ago, but the commit message has not shown up
yet. I got an error when I did an svn update recently, but not any more.

Anyhow, I committed patch DERBY-5636.diff to documentation trunk at revision 1305386. It's
in my log ...

I will move on to making the fixes to "Notes on the Derby security features" and will file
a second patch. Thanks very much for the suggestions, Rick.

> The documentation on Derby's security mechanisms is scattered across several manuals.
This makes it hard for developers to figure out which security mechanisms are relevant for
a given application. Here are 3 places where security documentation appears:
> 1) In the Developer's Guide section titled "Derby and security"
> 2) In the Admin Guide section titled "Derby Network Server advanced topics"
> 3) In the Reference Manual section titled "Derby properties" as well as the syntax sections
on GRANT, REVOKE, CREATE/DROP ROLE, and CREATE FUNCTION/PROCEDURE.
> It would be good to add a section which points the developer at all of this material.
It might be sufficient to rewrite the top level "Derby and security" page of the Developer's
Guide. The following white paper may help organize our thoughts about this: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javadb/securitywhitepaper10-159253.pdf
