Hi,
  The issue resolved., I just used the simple statement to get the original credentials:
     String pwd= new String(tmpPasword);
this pwd variable gives the required value.
Thanks,

Are these properties the actual values used in your real environment ? And which login moduel do you use, from Geronimo or written by yourself ?

Hi,
   I am calling a realm by its name and passing the user name and password as principal and credentials. In the initializer method of login module of realm I am getting the username and password. But password is in encrypted form. I need the password to be in decrypted form. My code is given below about how I am passing the username and password and how I am getting them:

Test client code:(only some portion, not full)

Properties props = new Properties();
            props.put("java.naming.factory.initial","org.apache.openejb.client.RemoteInitialContextFactory");   
            props.put("java.naming.provider.url", "127.0.0.1:4201");
            props.put("java.naming.security.principal", "sanjay");
            props.put("java.naming.security.credentials", "test");
.....................

the login module code in which I get the username and password:


Callback[] callbacks = new Callback[2];
        callbacks[0] = new NameCallback("username: ");
        callbacks[1] = new PasswordCallback("password: ", false);
        try{
        handler.handle(callbacks);
       
        username = ((NameCallback)callbacks[0]).getName();
// This line prints the username as specified above code as principal. i.e sanjay
        System.out.println("@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@"+username);
        if(username == null)
        {
        throw new LoginException("No user specified");
        }
       
        char[] tmpPassword =((PasswordCallback)callbacks[1]).getPassword();
//This line prints the password but in encrypted form. its something like this :[C@57a3ec8d. I need this to be as it is in credentials in test code i.e it should print "test".
        System.out.println("@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@"+tmpPassword);
            if (tmpPassword == null)
            {
            // treat null password as an empty password
            tmpPassword = new char[0];
            }
            System.out.println("@@@@@@@@@@@"+tmpPassword);
           
        }





I am using Geronimo 2.2. Any suggestions?
