Oracle Fusion Middleware Application Security Guide 11g Release 1 (11.1.1)

When entering a password value greater than 256 characters through FMW EM Console and then issuing the same value in the confirm password field, the GUI provides an alert that indicates the two values do not match as in below figure. 

However, if the same credentials are created using WLST, the password length allowed to be unlimited.  Below is the command used to add a credential to the credential store:

createCred(map="mytestmap", key="wlst_test", user="myuser", password="qqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqq

qqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqADDITIONAL")

As you can see, the password value is 256 q's with the word 'ADDITIONAL' added to the end.  

By running the below command the password is shown as the value entered in above case.

listCred(map="mytestmap", key="wlst_test")
