Hi



I would like to know how to solve this problem in J2EE application.



To connect to the database I need to have a user/passowrd.
At the moment I have a properties file with username/passowrd as entries in plain text.



So what the question is I should encrypt the username/password for sure.



Now I get overwhelmed in my options.What is the best way to encrypt/decrypt username/password.I know i need to use some crytography technique to encrypt the username/password, but in J2EE application before deploying the war file i have to have the username/password as the encrypted value.



My application server is SilverStream Application Server.



Then in the code I need to do the decryption whereever i am referring the username/password.



Can anyone tell me how to solve this type of issue. Seems like a common problem.



Thanks in Advance
