We created a userid in weblogic with some role and policy . We need a use this user id and password in our java code to connect to the server to destroy the JMS session

Our business user told to us not to user clear text password. I know we can encrypt the weblogic password using the below utility


Is there is any utility to decrypt the password?

I'm facing with the same problem, and urgently looking for an answer.

Can this utility be used for encrypting text other than the password for datasource. For e.g. encrypt a text, include the same as an attribute for a web application. When this web application is deployed will weblogic ensure this encrypted attribute is available to web application in cleartext at runtime?

Arunkumar - apologize for a late reply. Unfortunately there is no public method to decrypt an encrypted password.

Sachin - You can include the encrypted string, but unfortunately there is no public API to decrypt the password.
