HI

I am hosting my java based application on RHEL based server and Jboss 5 application server and using Oracle RAC as backend.  I am keeping my datasource information in deploy/oracle-ds.xml file and password is also stored in plain text formant.

Please suggest procedure to keep the datasource password in encrypted form.  Here below are extract of oracle-ds.xml file:

<datasources>
  <local-tx-datasource>
    <jndi-name>OracleDS</jndi-name>
                <connection-url>
jdbc:oracle:thin:@(description=(address=(protocol=tcp)(host=ORACLE_SERVER_HOSTNAME)(port=1521))(connect_data=(server=dedicated)(service_name=DB_SERVICE_NAME)))
                </connection-url>
    <driver-class>oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver</driver-class>
    <user-name>ORACLE_USER</user-name>
    <password>ORACLE_PASSWORD</password>
    <min-pool-size>0</min-pool-size>
    <exception-sorter-class-name>org.jboss.resource.adapter.jdbc.vendor.OracleExceptionSorter</exception-sorter-class-name>
