Plain text password stored in flat file that controls access to the database configuration page!
Any way to encrypt that password or disable the page entirely?

Hi share
After discussing with our developer, he suggest that you just need to modify the database.config.password parameter with a plain text password, and then restart Tomcat, the new password will be encrypted automatically in the configuration file.
