a simple, built-in repository of user names and passwords.
built-in 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.
To use the built-in repository, set derby.authentication.provider to BUILTIN.
Using built-in users is an alternative to using an external directory service
such as LDAP.
You can create user names and passwords for Derby users
by specifying them with the derby.user.UserName property.
Note: These user names are case-sensitive for user authentication. User names
are SQL92Identifiers. Delimited identifiers are allowed:
Note: For passwords, it is a good idea not to use words that would be easily
guessed, such as a login name or simple words or numbers. A password should
be a mix of numbers and upper- and lowercase letters.
When you create users with database-level properties, those users are available to the specified database only.
When you create users with system-level properties, those users are available to all databases in the system.
