can't login with Arabic password using JAAS in JBoss AS

ramy Hassan Novice



The problem is that I can't login to my application with Arabic password although I can login with english password and i'm using the following:



Hashing password before insert it into the DB using below code:


 private String getSha1(String text) throws NoSuchAlgorithmException,
   UnsupportedEncodingException {
  MessageDigest md;
  md = MessageDigest.getInstance("SHA-1");
  byte[] sha1hash = new byte[40];
  md.update(text.getBytes("UTF-8"), 0, text.length());
  sha1hash = md.digest();
  return convertToBase64(sha1hash);
 private String convertToBase64(byte[] data) {
  return new String(Base64.encode(data, data.length));



adding policy in the login file and add the orange lines below to support hashing password before selecting it from the DB:

 <application-policy name="messageEnginge">
          <login-module code="org.jboss.security.auth.spi.DatabaseServerLoginModule" flag="required">
          <module-option name="unauthenticatedIdentity">guest</module-option>
          <module-option name="dsJndiName">jndiname</module-option>
          <module-option name="principalsQuery">the query of password   </module-option>
          <module-option name="rolesQuery">thequery of roles        </module-option>
              <module-option name="hashCharset">UTF-8</module-option>
          <module-option name="hashAlgorithm">SHA1</module-option>
          <module-option name="hashEncoding">base64</module-option>


Jboss AS version > 5.0

using JSF and richfaces for info
