Java and blank passwords...

is a bad thing.
For the second time in a one week period I have been reminded that Java does not like blank passwords passed via the command line. Two EAI products have now choked on this and I have been forced to give the user a password.
Yes yes, I know we should have had a password on the account in the first place, but it's a lab and we didn't. Now we do. Because Java can't handle blank ones.
I also accidently locked myself out of our CRM application. I told it to use IIS authentication and WHAM! I can't get into it. At all. I perused the database to try and find the setting and change it back, but it doesn't appear to be there. Next week it's time to look in the registry - wheeeeee!
