      Description

      while doing support for a customer found that they had missed that Derby only supported the NoPadding option in encryption. The existing section
      says so in the list of supported options, but there is a section on how to specify that points out allowed feedbackmodes but does not emphasize that
      only NoPadding is allowed. I think the current documentation found at:
      http://db.apache.org/derby/manuals/develop/develop115.html

      Could be improved by adding to the following existing section:
      By Java convention, an encryption algorithm is specified like this:

      algorithmName/feedbackMode/padding

      The only feedback modes allowed are:

      • CBC
      • CFB
      • ECB
      • OCB

      By adding:
      The only padding modes allowed is:

      • NoPadding
