The Password Transformer provides a means of transforming a plain-text string into an MD5 encrypted string. A typical use of PasswordTransformer would be

<map:transformers default="xslt"> <map:transformer name="password" src="resource://lib/transforming/PasswordTransformer"/> ... </map:transformers> <map:pipelines> <map:pipeline> <map:match pattern="login.xml"> ... <transform type="password"/> ... </map:match> </map:pipeline> </map:pipelines>

The transformer is based on a single <authentication> tag which has the form:

<authentication username="hsfr" password="mypassword" />

After processing with the PasswordTransformer the tag becomes:

<authentication username="hsfr" password="h7fdT71xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxGFdgfg" />
