Hi All,

I am trying to acheive the following
1. In the Creation of the DATASOURCE Bean in Spring Configuration file , the password should be encrypted.

Now we have a way to encrypt/decrypt the password. Now the problem is to how we should set the same in the DataSource Defination.

I looked into the API and found out the following
a) DriverManagerDataSource. The issue is that it dosen't supports the Connection Pool.

Also the other way which I was possibly trying to do is to read the ENCRYPTED password from the Spring file and decrypt the same and store it in Some Statis Fields (At the Application Level) and wire this in the bean attribute.
Can you guide me as to how we can define the Application Level Variable in Spring and How to attach the same to a BEan's property.

Or is there any other way to get the ENCRYPTED Password implementation in Spring

Once we had this requirement we hardcoded md5() in the sql statement itself to save the encrypted password & also did similar changes in the applicationSecurity.xml having code as
