I've created an (enterprise) application I want to deploy on a GlassFish 2 cluster.
I need some bean within my application that can hold a secret password, that may not be stored (in a database or the filesystem). I want to create a webpage where an administrator enters the password upon cluster start. The cluster instances must be aware of the password then. Only if I turn off the complete cluster (e.g. reboot all maschines) it may get lost.
