During design time while creating a Service bus project in Jdeveloper with Service Accounts (static), it is storing credentials in plain text in a file

While creating service account following the documentation below, the credentials are saved in a *.sa file as plain text.  

The credentials to be stored encrypted.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Create a service account in Jdeveloper in a service bus project
2. *.sa file is generated and you will not able to read the password in Jdeveloper (will be dots as expected).
3. Check for the file in the file system, open the file in a text pad to see the username and password stored in plain text. (for example: /refresh/home/jdeveloper/mywork/ServiceAccountPlanTextPwdApp/ServiceAccountPlainTextPrj/*.sa)
