So, the problem now, correctly stated, is :

- does there exist a Java driver for SQL Server 2008, which allows for NTLM authentication

with SQL Server, and does not have a memory leak ?

(and I would think that Microsoft would be the place to look first)

But it is still a bad solution with respect to security, agreed ?

It would still be interesting to know in what exact terms you were given this task.
Did they tell you
- that the userid and password should in no circumstances be stored in clear in any file 
on the Tomcat server (even if this file cannot be accessed by anyone) ?
- or did they tell you : our security scanner found a file containing a user-id and 
password; this is not acceptable ?
- or some other formulation ?
