We are using JDBC for connecting from Linux systems to our IBM i databases. There are multiple scripts which automatically and periodically process all available databases. Currently we could either input the password every time a script is executed or store it in clear text in ODBC/JDBC definition file (odbc.ini). The easiest way for us to bypass the clear-text-password problem would be to store it in a hashed format and allow JDBC driver to work with this hash.
