Subject [jira] [Comment Edited] (DERBY-5805) More context for bootPassword and encryptionKey attributes would be helpful

> However, the topics on encryptionProvider and encryptionAlgorithm do not mention the
encryptionKey attribute, implying that they only work with bootPassword.

I see an example in the tests (in "encryptionKey_jar.sql") that combines algorithm and key:

connect 'jdbc:derby:jar:(ina.jar)db1;encryptionAlgorithm=DES/CBC/NoPadding;encryptionKey=6162636465666768'
AS DB1;

I believe encryptionKey can be used instead of bootPassword always.

[Update: the code in JCECipherFactory#init indicates this holds. -Dag ]

> The Developer's Guide and Reference Manual information on the bootPassword and encryptionKey
attributes doesn't state (not prominently, anyway) that these properties are mutually exclusive,
as Rick Hillegas points out in his 6/8/2012 comment on DERBY-5622. This information should
be included in the documentation for these properties.
