Subject [jira] [Updated] (DERBY-5741) Native user authentication: improve checking of syntax
Date Fri, 04 May 2012 19:12:48 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-5741?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Rick Hillegas updated DERBY-5741:

    Attachment: derby-5741-01-aa-percolateDerbyErrorUp.diff

Attaching derby-5741-01-aa-percolateDerbyErrorUp.diff. This patch improves the error message
seen in this situation. I am running full regression tests now.

It turns out that the user-supplied authentication service was throwing a more informative
error. However, the informative part of that error was swallowed by EmbedConnection and the
only error presented to the end-user was the triggering ClassNotFoundException.

I have changed the error returned by the user-supplied authentication service so that it survives
munging by EmbedConnection.

This is what the error looks like now:

"ERROR XBM0M: Error creating an instance of a class named 'NATIVE'. This class name was the
value of the derby.authentication.provider property and was expected to be the name of an
application-supplied implementation of org.apache.derby.authentication.UserAuthenticator.
The underlying problem was: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: NATIVE"

Touches the following files:


M       java/engine/org/apache/derby/impl/jdbc/authentication/SpecificAuthenticationServiceImpl.java
M       java/engine/org/apache/derby/loc/messages.xml

Improved error message.


M       java/testing/org/apache/derbyTesting/functionTests/tests/lang/NativeAuthenticationServiceTest.java

Regression test for this case.

> Trying to set derby.authentication.provider to "NATIVE:" correctly gives an error message
complaining about the syntax:
> "ERROR XCY05: Invalid setting of the derby.authentication.provider property. 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."
> Trying to set it as "NATIVE" (no trailing colon) does not treat this the value as a malformed
NATIVE authentication specification. This leads to it being interpreted as a used defined
authentication class, so when I attempt to connect after disconnection from the database I
> ERROR XJ040: Failed to start database 'cred' with class loader sun.misc.Launcher$AppClassLoader@18d107f,
see the next exception for details.
> ERROR XJ001: Java exception: 'NATIVE: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException'.
> Another thing is that the error message in the first place is out of date now: we never
shoudl be setting "NATIVE::LOCAL" explicitly, it id does once the first user is created according
to version 7.0 of the spec. See DERBY-5742.
