WAS 61 - Base64 Encoder

Hi,

I want to implement a small login module using the Base 64 Encoder that comes with WAS library.

I have seen the fully qualified class name for Base 64 Encoder in PropertyPasswordEncoder.bat in profile\bin folder.

But I am not sure in which jar file under AppServer\lib the class is located.

I request WebSphere experts to provide inputs on this.

Thanks,
Rishi

I presume that you mean: PropFilePasswordEncoder.bat

Looking...

This is not quite as simple as I once though...

I thought that it might be as simple as making a copy of the PropFilePasswordEncoder.bat file, and adding the -verbose Java command line property to the Java invocation to execute the execution of the Java command.  Unfortunately, it calls the launcher which is used to start a second JVM.

So, I had to be a bit more thorough, and wrote the following Python script to locate the files containing the following jar files contain com/ibm/ws/security/util/PropFilePasswordEncoder.class

--------------------------------------------------
.\deploytool\itp\plugins\com.ibm.websphere.v61_6.1.100\ws_runtime.jar
.\deploytool\itp\plugins\com.ibm.websphere.v61_6.1.200\ws_runtime.jar
.\plugins\com.ibm.ws.runtime_6.1.0.jar
.\runtimes\com.ibm.ws.admin.client_6.1.0.jar
.\runtimes\com.ibm.ws.webservices.thinclient_6.1.0.jar
--------------------------------------------------

btw, it took a long time to run on my machine because of the number of jar files to be processed.
I guess I need faster hardware. ;-)

Note: It needs / uses "grep"
import os, os.path;

jar = r'.\java\bin\jar';

def main() :
  for root, dirs, files in os.walk( '.' ) :
    for name in files :
      if name.endswith( '.jar' ) :
        result = os.system( jar + ' tf ' + os.path.join( root, name ) + ' | grep PropFilePasswordEncoder >grep.out' );
        if os.path.getsize( 'grep.out' ) > 0 :
          print( os.path.join( root, name ) );


if __name__ == '__main__' :
  main();
