Improve the overview of Derby's security mechanisms
---------------------------------------------------

                 Key: DERBY-5636
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-5636
             Project: Derby
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Documentation
    Affects Versions: 10.9.0.0
            Reporter: Rick Hillegas


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
