    Problem with special character "_" in datasource password.

    Kenneth Hensel Newbie

      I have been having this issue lately and it may very well be a bug.  If there is another discussion on this, I haven't seen it.

       

      I have an oracle datasource configured and there are two users that I use.  One user has a password that contains a dollar sign and it works just fine.

       

      The other user has a password that contains underscore (_) and when I try to login using it, there is nothing in the log at all.  It simply dies.  I replaced the password with "xxxxx" and got a response in the log:

       

      Caused by: java.sql.SQLException: ORA-01017: invalid username/password; logon denied

       

      This indicates to me that the password with "_" is causing a problem.  I am having the DBAs change the password to get rid of the underscore.  Until then, I'm going to assume it causes a problem in the configuration.  I am using jboss-as-7.1.3.Final built from source.

       

      Any response would be appreciated.  if this is a not a known bug, then a ticket may need to be opened.  I'll put more information here when the DBAs reset the password.

       

      Thanks, Ken Hensel
