Persistent incorrect password file generatation [message #208641] Fri, 15 February 2008 15:59 Go to next message

Hello Everyone,

I tried to use the search tools as I'm sure that this question has been
asked and answered before but I couldn't come up with anything so I was
probably not using them correctly. Forgive me. :)

Anyway, I have a strange thing happening to me. I have a copy of Sun
Java Application Server PE 9 on my machine and I have eclipse connected to
it through the GlassFish V2 Java EE 5 connector. When I created the
server, I incorrectly specified the admin password (it was just left at
the default). In an attempt to correct that I have done the following:

Server View -> Open Server -> Edit Admin Password:
Doesn't work, persists till I close the server and then changes back to
the original password.

Edit the generated passwd file directly:
Obviously this doesn't work because the file gets cleanly generated every
time.

Edit sunappsrv-ant.xml directly and hardcode the correct password into the
file:
Doesn't work, I suppose because this file gets generated automatically?

Anyway, my real question lies in this, how could I recover from a password
change on the admin user? Why wouldn't the changes I made to the Server
from within eclipse drop through to the config file?

At this point I've solved the problem by recreating the connection to the
server through Server -> New and correctly specifying the password.
However, it's entirely conceivable that the admin would want to change the
password so I figure Eclipse has to be able to do this in some simple way.

Thanks for any information!

Timmy V.

Just wondering if there was any other news here? It seems like a
fairly reasonable question, if a little infantile. Any help would be
greatly appreciated.

You might have better luck asking on a newsgroup related to the
GlassFish plug-ins. The GlassFish plug-ins are built on top of, but
aren't actually a part of WTP. I don't think your issue is something we
can address in WTP.

Cheers,

Ah, that would explain a lot. Thanks for the advice.

BTW, did you have a recommendation on what newsgroup to move to. I did
a very quick search and couldn't find anything pertinent. Just thought
I'd ask someone who might know before I wasted too much time crawing
around in the dark.

Thanks in advance!

Googling turned up "https://glassfishplugins.dev.java.net/". You might
try one of the mailing lists off the "Mailing lists" link on that page.
Unfortunately, a quick check of various archives doesn't show a lot of
activity. I don't know if there is anything better.

Cheers,
Larry
