Plain password authenticaion in COOL 1.2.6

There's a bug in COOL 1.2.6 preventing the use of the plain password authentication, i.e. passing the password in the connect string. You'll have to use the (better) authentication via authentication.xml (see below).

Authentication via authentication.xml

Add the following to your authentication.xml:

<connection name="oracle://ATLAS_COOLPROD;schema=ATLAS_COOL_SCT;user=ATLAS_COOL_SCT;dbname=TBMCPROD" >
  <parameter name="user" value="ATLAS_COOL_SCT" />
  <parameter name="password" value="xxx" />

and use the connect string


You can specify the location of authentication.xml by setting the following value in your seal configuration file:


(or POOL/Services/... if you're using RAL)
