SQLJ.INSTALL_JAR system procedure

The SQLJ.INSTALL_JAR system procedure stores a jar file in a database.


                 IN QUALIFIED_JAR_NAME VARCHAR(32672),
                 IN DEPLOY INTEGER)
The path or URL of the jar file to add. A path includes both the directory and the file name (unless the file is in the current directory, in which case the directory is optional). Two examples:

 -- a delimited identifier
If set to 1, indicates the existence of an SQLJ deployment descriptor file. Derby ignores this argument, so it is normally set to 0.

Execute privileges

If authentication and SQL authorization are both enabled, only the database owner has execute privileges on this procedure by default. See "Configuring user authentication" and "Configuring user authorization" in the Derby Security Guide for more information.

The database owner can grant access to other users. Since this procedure can be used to install arbitrary code (possibly from across the network) that runs in the same Java Virtual Machine as the Derby database engine, the execute privilege should be granted only to trusted users.
