derby.user.UserName

Function

Has two uses:

Important: Derby's BUILTIN authentication mechanism is suitable only for development and testing purposes. It is strongly recommended that production systems rely on LDAP or a user-defined class for authentication. It is also strongly recommended that production systems protect network connections with SSL/TLS.

Users and Passwords

This property creates valid clear-text users and passwords within Derby when the derby.authentication.provider property is set to BUILTIN. For information about users, see "Working with user authentication" in the Java DB Developer's Guide.

When a user name and its corresponding password are provided in the DriverManager.getConnection call, Derby validates them against the properties defined for the current system.

User names are SQL92Identifiers and can be delimited.

derby.user.{UserName=Password} | UserName=userDN }
-- database-level property
CALL SYSCS_UTIL.SYSCS_SET_DATABASE_PROPERTY(
    'derby.user.UserName',
    'Password | userDN')
