Hi
In all jdbc programs we supply the username & password of the database user in the java program itself.
How can i avoid this. Say anybody can decompile the class file & obtain the username & password to the database
What are the other alternatives available

Welcome to JavaRanch, hitesh parikh!
Obviously, the account information could reside in a properties file that is read in.
The class file would then not have explicitly knowledge of the account information and securing the properties file would be a separate issue.
