Start Derby NetworkServerControl with credentials to prevent unauthorized shutdowns
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: GERONIMO-4296
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GERONIMO-4296
             Project: Geronimo
          Issue Type: Improvement
      Security Level: public (Regular issues)
          Components: databases
    Affects Versions: 2.0.3, 2.1.3, 2.1.4, 2.2
            Reporter: Donald Woods
            Assignee: Donald Woods
            Priority: Minor
             Fix For: 2.2


Use the new NetworkServerControl support in Derby 10.4.1.3 and later to start our embedded
Derby server with credentials, to prevent any other apps on localhost from stopping our Derby
instance.  The following Derby release note details the scenario and the new API -
http://db.apache.org/derby/releases/release-10.4.1.3.html#Note+for+DERBY-3585

We could either use random uid/pwd values to start the Derby server, which would be the most
secure, but would keep other apps from using our Derby server.  The other option, would be
to set uid/pwd GBean attributes and default the to the default system/manager values and leave
it up to the user to change them.

Note:  This may also require some Samples, Testsuite and Portlet chagnes to handle the required
DB auth.
