The following method has been tested with a WebLogic version 12.2.1 application server.
To modify a Java application or application server (such as Weblogic, JBoss, or Tomcat) into a requestor, modify them to use the Privileged Access Manager JARs and native code libraries:
cwjcafips.jar. They are located in the
cloakwareJdbc.jarfile must be in the class path of the requestor. It is located in the
Setting the class path can be done in the standard Java manner or might be application-specific. The latter is a common requirement of application servers. See your application documentation for details.
The library path can be set:
LD_LIBRARY_PATHfor Solaris and Linux, and
The Privileged Access Manager JDBC driver is a proxy for the original Database Management System (DBMS) JDBC driver. Without A2A, the requestor has a JDBC connection to a DBMS. The requestor is configured with
To use Privileged Access Manager JDBC driver:
targetDriverClassNameis the class name of the original DBMS JDBC driver (such as
com.microsoft.sqlserver.jdbc.SQLServerDriverfor Microsoft SQL Server,
org.postgresql.Driverfor Postgres, or
aliasis the target alias that is associated with the target account the requestor uses to log in to the DBMS
CA Technologies also recommends that the username and password fields be cleared out because they are overwritten by the Privileged Access Manager JDBC proxy driver.
The following example shows a modified connection string to an Oracle database:
