To change password for DB2 user

P: n/a
DB2 user OS to do the authenticate.
For security reason, the password of the used used by the application
need to be changed.
To change the source is easy, but there is hundreds of applications
also need do the same change accordingly.
Some of them use hard-coded password, some of them use properties file,
some of them use other way.
Anyone has experience for this, or any suggestion?

I don't think there is a magical solution to this. Either you have to change
the application design or change all the passwords wherever they may be.

To avoid password problems, don't use them. Use Kerberos instead. That way
you can rely upon the initial user logon for everything, and you avoid the
security risk that comes with hard coded passwords and the like.
