Oh, if you are encrypting the password, it must be in an external file by absolute path.  i.e. if Grouper sees a File delimiter, it will open the file, get the contents, and unencrypt.  If not, just uses the password.  Ok?  Thanks, chris

I am seeing the following exception:


Couldnt startup grouper: Problems with db: DB: user: ucla db user, url: jdbc:sqlserver://ucla database server ;databaseName=database name, driver:

This is how my file look like:


# Put a random alphanumeric string (Case sensitive) for the password encryption.  e.g. fh43IRJ4Nf5

# or put a filename where the random alphanumeric string is.  e.g. c:/whatever/key.txt

#encrypt.key = /Users/vsachdeva/key.txt

encrypt.key = viveksachdeva

# set this to true if you have slashes in your passwords and dont want to look in external files or unencrypt

encrypt.disableExternalFileLookup = false


And I generated the password using morphString.jar and that password when put into external file works fine but when I put the same password in the hibernate properties file, it does not work.

I am trying to encrypt the password. It works when I use the external files to store the key and encrypted password. When I use the same key as in external file in and use the same encrypted password as in external password file in hibernate properties file, it does not work. Any ideas?
