Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-6160) Fixes needed to documentation topics on security policy permissions
Date Fri, 19 Apr 2013 03:57:17 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-6160?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13636021#comment-13636021
] 

Dag H. Wanvik commented on DERBY-6160:
--------------------------------------

Kathey, as for  "derby.__serverStartedFromCmdLine" not being granted, the server will normally
work and still restrict permissions. The reason for this is that this property is set *before*
to true the default security manager is installed.

However, if the user specifies a policy for when starting java, using "-Djava.security.policy"
the setting of this property by the network server start would fail due to lack of permission.
So, in general, the permission is needed.

> DERBY-5363 added a new required permission  RuntimePermission "accessUserInformation".
> This should be added to the developer guide information under granting permissions to
Derby.
