Hi I deployed an ear file in weblogic server 10.3.3 , when i try logging into the application the authentication fails. As username, password and roles are stored in the tomcatusers.xml file in TOmcat. i wanted to know where are the usernames, passwords stored in weblogic.

You can find the weblogic username and password in the file under your domain dir, which is in encrypted form.

thanks for reply, but i dont want the weblogic console username and password. I want the application security assigned username and password. like the one stored in tomcatusers.xml file. Application security is handled by security realm, so where can i find the username and password for application access.

The username/password storage is based on the security realm & providers. By default the realm is file based. You can login to the WebLogic console, click on my realm, look for users & add it from there. There could be a command line option available in weblogic.jar, which might allow you to do the data migration.

In addition to the earlier reply, WebLogic server stores all the users, groups and roles details in the weblogic's default LDAP Server called Embedded LDAP. You can manipulate the users/ groups from the admin console.

You can create your set of users from the Admin Console and specify the corresponding role mappings in the Deployment descriptors of your application.
