I want to store a user password encrypted in the database.
I've created a class based on an example using JCE.. Here are some code extracts :

It works fine in my junit test which encrypts a given value and decrypts it to it's original.

The problem arrives when I save the encrypted password in the database (oracle). When I try to retrieve the encrypted String and try to decrypt it I receive the following Exception :

The column in the database is of type varchar2 and has a length of 255.
I think it has something to do with the storage in the database since I can do the encryption/decryption in a unit test.

Any help is highly appreciated...

Are the database and the database connection running in UTF-8 mode as well?
I agree. Here's the link:
