Stop asadm to ask for master password

Sun Java Application Server 9.x or glassfish command asadm asks for master password during execution. At SJAS 8.x era, asadm only asked for one password, AS_ADMIN_PASSWORD, and you can save "AS_ADMIN_PASSWORD=" into a file and supply this file as the value of parameter "--passwordfile". Now newer version asks for master password. It might be a security improvement, but it is inconvenient for developers.

Someone told me to set envt variable AS_ADMIN_MASTERPASSWORD. This does not help. However, the solution is simple. You can use the same password file, but add one more line "AS_ADMIN_MASTERPASSWORD=". Actually you can even use a --savemasterpassword flag when executing asadm command with subcommand create-domain, create-node-agent, and change-master-password. An encrypted master-password file will be created under the home directory. And this will stop prompting for master password.
