If you need to reset the ias_admin password (unix), enter the following commands

emctl set password <newpassword>
emctl authenticate <newpassword>

If you need to reset the ias_admin password (windows), do the following

The Enterprise Manager Web Site will enforce use of the current Administrator (ias_admin) password when you log in to Enterprise Manager, stop the Enterprise Manager Service, or change the ias_admin password. If you have forgotten your ias_admin password then you must reset it using the following procedure while you are logged on to your PC as the person who installed Oracle9iAS:

1.Edit the following file and locate the line that defines the credentials property for use the ias_admin user:

%ORACLE_HOME%\sysman\j2ee\config\jazn-data.xml

The following example shows the section of jazn-data.xml with the credentials entry in boldface type:

<realm>
<name>enterprise-manager</name>
<users>
<user>
<name>ias_admin</name>
<credentials>rJqp85BkhFwAyw9ddl0PnFlUBVaWzbfT</credentials>
</user>

2.Remove the entire line that contains the <credentials> property from jazn-data.xml.

3.Enter the following command from DOS Command window:

%ORACLE_HOME%\bin\emctl set password reset <new password>

4. Restart your PC. After resetting the password, you can't stop the em service since it is still using the old password. You have to reboot the system to get the new password to take effect.

OC4J  is a J2EE environment, normally running in OracleAS. You can run it standalone in a development environment.

Can you confirm  your environmentt? What are you using as a webserver?

go to $OC4J_HOME/config/jazn-data.xml and search for admin,
reset the password in cleartext with a ! at the start, like !welcome and restart it..
oc4j will crypt it the next time then ..
