A simple script to decrypt stored passwords from the Oracle SQL Developer IDE

SQL Developer password decryptor

A simple script to decrypt stored passwords from the Oracle SQL Developer IDE.

* Support old v3 and current v4 passwords
* Comes in 2 flavors: a Jython and a Python script

#### Version 3
Passwords are stored encrypted in the `connections.xml` file in those locations:
* Windows: `C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\SQL Developer\system<version>\o.jdeveloper.db.connection.<version>\connections.xml`
* Linux: `~/.sqldeveloper/system<version>/o.jdeveloper.db.connection.<version>/connections.xml`

#### Version 4
Passwords are stored encrypted in the aforementioned `connections.xml` file but the encryption key by default uses a machine-unique value `` in the `product-preferences.xml` file accessible here:
* Windows: `C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\SQL Developer\system<version>\o.sqldeveloper.<version>\product-preferences.xml`
* Linux: `~/.sqldeveloper/system<version>/o.sqldeveloper.<version>/product-preferences.xml`

When exporting one or more connections in **version 4**, the user is asked to type a password: **that password is then used as a key to encrypt the entries instead of the `` value.**
