Subject Re: Query regarding updating a user password
Date Tue, 28 Aug 2012 11:38:01 GMT

A quick flick through the docs finds the following page


There is even a JDBC example....

CallableStatement cs = conn.prepareCall

You need to be logged on as the specified user to change the password.

Alternatively you may decide to use the reset password function, here
is the page link


Again there is a JDBC example, and you need to be the DB owner to run
the procedure.

Remeber to initiate a 'password strength' checker if you are concerned
about 'weak' password.
You may also want to check out (quote from the docs, linked in the
modify password page I posted above)

derby.authentication.native.passwordLifetimeMillis property sets the
password expiration time, and the
derby.authentication.native.passwordLifetimeThreshold property sets
the time when a user is warned that the password will expire.
