Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-3195) Describe if default security manager & policy is installed or not on each of the mechanisms to start the network server.
Date Wed, 10 Sep 2014 20:44:34 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-3195?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14129065#comment-14129065
] 

Kim Haase commented on DERBY-3195:
----------------------------------

The output shown in the Getting Started manual (http://db.apache.org/derby/docs/10.11/getstart/twwdactivity4.html)
shows that the security manager is installed:

java -jar $DERBY_HOME/lib/derbyrun.jar server start
Fri Sep 14 09:55:23 EDT 2012 : Security
 manager installed using the Basic server
 security policy.

The NetworkServerControl javadoc doesn't mention this, nor does the documentation of the derby.drda.startNetworkServerProperty
property in the Admin Guide.

The Security Guide barely mentions this, in the topic "Configuring Java security".

The information may be worth adding in the places the reporter suggests.

> Describe if default security manager & policy is installed or not on each of the

>                 Key: DERBY-3195
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-3195
>             Project: Derby
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Documentation, Javadoc
>    Affects Versions: 10.3.1.4
>            Reporter: Daniel John Debrunner
>            Priority: Minor
>
> The explicit mechanisms to start the network server make no mention of if they install
a default security manager and policy or not.
> These are at least:
> NetworkServerControl javadoc
>    summary - start command on command line
>    main() method
>    start() method
> derby.drda.startNetworkServerProperty
> Each start mechanism should clearly state if they install or do not install the default
security manager and policy.
> (Other starts commands are)
> java -jar derbynet.jar
> java -jar derbyrun.jar server start
> I didn't look to see if these document the default policy or not, not sure where they
are documented.
