Subject Re: User/password encryption and deployment

Good questions, Bill.   Yes, I would definitely want something that
works with Sun JRE.

I would think Derby over SSL is good enough.  I don't know that
STARTTLS is, and I don't know how you can configure Derby to work over
SSL/TLS.  Any pointers?

Francois worked on this, maybe he can answer.
