Subject [jira] [Created] (DERBY-6986) Network Server COMMAND_TESTCONNECTION need not try to open a database
Date Sun, 18 Mar 2018 23:46:00 GMT
Bryan Pendleton created DERBY-6986:
--------------------------------------

             Summary: Network Server COMMAND_TESTCONNECTION need not try to open a database
                 Key: DERBY-6986
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-6986
             Project: Derby
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Network Server
    Affects Versions: 10.14.1.0
            Reporter: Bryan Pendleton
            Assignee: Bryan Pendleton


The Network Server has a special protocol which can be used to send it commands (e.g., "stop",
"ping", "sysinfo", etc.). The "ping" command, which internally is known in the code as COMMAND_TESTCONNECTION,
allows a custom client program to request that the Network Server attempt to open a Derby
database specified as an argument in the COMMAND_TESTCONNECTION packet.

This is very old code, probably included during the initial development of the Network Server
as a development-time diagnostic tool, and is not required for any current Network Server
functionality, so it should be removed.
