Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-5522) Document the NATIVE authentication scheme.

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

Hi Kim,

With the introduction of NATIVE authentication, we are urging applications to migrate away
from the unsafe BUILTIN mechanism. Since password substitution can only be used with an authentication
scheme which we think is unsafe, we are sending mixed signals by continuing to document password
substitution. I think that we should remove all references to password substitution. Thanks.
