Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-1721) DOCS - Remove duplicate information in Dev Guide re: Encryption
Date Fri, 05 Oct 2012 14:00:19 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-1721?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13470325#comment-13470325

Kim Haase commented on DERBY-1721:

I have learned of an error in src/devguide/cdevcsecure60146.dita, "Booting an encrypted database"
-- to access a database that was encrypted with a non-default algorithm, you do not need to
specify the algorithm again, since the algorithm is stored in service.properties. You need
only specify the boot password or encryption key.

I plan to commit the existing patch on October 8 and then file a revised patch with this change.
If anyone notices other changes that need to be made, please let me know. I also plan to backport
the changes, but no further back than 10.5.

> In the Developers Guide. there are 2 sections that contain information about encryption.

> In some cases there are topics with different content but with the same titles. 
> There should not be duplicate titles in the Derby documentation.
> There is this section: 
> JDBC applications and Derby basics -->Derby embedded basics -->Working with the
database connection URL attributes 
> that has these topic titles: 
> --Using the databaseName attribute 
> --Shutting down Derby or an individual database 
> --Creating and accessing a database 
> --Providing a user name and password 
> --Encrypting a database when you create it 
> --Booting an encrypted database 
> --Specifying attributes in a properties object 
> Then there is this section: 
> Derby and Security -->Encrypting databases on disk -->Working with encryption 
> that has these topic titles: 
> --Encrypting databases on creation 
> --Creating the boot password 
>    --Specifying an alternate encryption provider 
>    --Specifying an alternate encryption algorithm 
> --Booting an encrypted database 
> --Changing the boot password 
> Someone needs to look at the content of these files, rework the information and necessary,
create the related links, and then retitle the topics to avoid duplicate titles.
