Subject Re: Getting a clear text password from Apache DS 1.5.0
Date Thu, 13 Dec 2007 09:37:38 GMT
Hi Emmanuel,

Thanks for your mail & information.

 Yes,  as you said I stored the password in "Plain Text". I'm trying to
retrieve the password by using JNDI, but still I could'nt get the exact
password value.

  It would be great to me, if you provide any sample snippet code.

Thanks & Regards
UdayaKiran.Ala
