Subject [jira] [Updated] (DERBY-6234) Remove references to BUILTIN authentication from the user guides
Date Fri, 21 Feb 2014 16:42:21 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-6234?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Kim Haase updated DERBY-6234:

    Attachment: DERBY-6234-2.zip

Attaching DERBY-6234-2.diff, DERBY-6234-2.stat, and DERBY-6234-2.zip, which I hope address
the issues with the first patch. I hope I made the right changes to the topic on derby.user.UserName.
(I got rid of the section on users and passwords, except for the last sentence on user names
being SQLIdentifiers, which I am guessing is still true.

Thanks again!

> BUILTIN authentication is a scheme suitable only for regression tests. Many security
problems make it inappropriate for production use. To avoid confusion and prevent users from
selecting this insecure authentication scheme, we should remove references to it from our
user documentation.
