SealedObjects and unsealing them

Hi there,

I have this object called UserDetail. It has two private Strings called username and passwd.

This UserDetail object I seal up into a SealedObject and it gets put into a file.

Now when I try to take the UserDetail out of the file and out of the SealedObject, the username comes out fine but the passwd come out as a bizarre String of characters.

I don't understand why this is happening as they are both plain strings. Please could someone give me some advice.

Many kind regards,
I agree. Here's the link:
