Using Credential Store Framework when communicating with Oracle Human Workflow API by Sven Bernhardt

For connecting to Oracle Human Workflow Engine via the provided client API, username and password of an admin user are needed. These credentials could also be useful during task processing, when actions on a task has to be performed on behalf of a user, for example in case of holidays or illness. But how can to manage the admin users credentials in secure way, independent from the target environment?

A first approach is to use a mechanism where the credentials were provided as context parameters in the web.xml, of a Facade Web Service in front of the client API to hide complexity and to force upgrade protection in case of API changes.

This solution works, but has the disadvantage that username and password of the admin user are contained in the deployment plan as clear text. From a SysOps perspective this mechanism is not appropriate.
