Subject Re: User/password encryption and deployment

Hi, Andrew.  This is helpful, thanks.  But my attempts to find out how
to "use" SSL/TLS is not clear.  Is there a way to use this over any
old TCP socket connection?  The closest thing I can find is STARTTLS,
which is what Bill was referring to, but this appears to require
cooperation within the network code.  A regular old user of Derby
doesn't seem to have the power to make a connection happen over SSL

S when you say "SSL is the recommended alternative," exactly what do
you mean?  How would you tell a user to *do* this?
