Re: InstantDB: SecurityException


Anil

InstantDB was first written under JDK 1.02 when the granularity of Java 
security was much less refined. Unfortunately there are still a few 
leftovers from that time including several calls to getProperties(). 

On your need for username/password functionality, I'm afraid that won't 
be happening anytime soon. I'm currently focusing all my efforts on 
readying InstantDB for its first open source version.
