Subject [Tomcat Wiki] Trivial Update of "FAQ/Password" by KonstantinKolinko
Date Sun, 07 Nov 2010 17:06:27 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Tomcat Wiki" for change notification.

The "FAQ/Password" page has been changed by KonstantinKolinko.
The comment on this change is: Mark that this page belongs to CategoryFAQ.


   * Write your own {{{javax.naming.spi.ObjectFactory}}} implementation that creates and configures
your datasource.
   * (Tomcat 7) Write your own {{{org.apache.tomcat.util.IntrospectionUtils.PropertySource}}}
implementation to 'decrypt' passwords that are 'encrypted' in and referenced
via ${...} in server.xml. You'll need to set the system property {{{org.apache.tomcat.util.digester.PROPERTY_SOURCE}}}
to point to your !PropertySource implementation. This won't provide any real security, it
just adds another level of indirection - i.e. 'security by obscurity'.
