      Description

      The Derby security policy has become more elaborate over time. The Admin Guide gives readers a stale, confusing version of the policy: http://db.apache.org/derby/docs/10.7/adminguide/tadminnetservbasic.html

          Looks like the version in http://db.apache.org/derby/docs/10.7/adminguide/tadminnetservbasic.html should be replaced with the contents of db-derby-10.7.1.1-bin/demo/templates/server.policy (a much longer file). I'll file a patch to that effect unless I hear otherwise.

          Attaching DERBY-4991.diff and tadminnetservbasic.html. I included the contents of the current server.policy file, making some line break changes.

          Does this rework incorporate the need pointed out by DERBY-4990?

          No, I'll address the rest of DERBY-4990 separately, hopefully after committing this patch.
