Resolution

Changing the password to a different password (without numbers in it) allowed the authentication from JBoss to the database to be successful.
 
Additional Note:
The Unauthenticated caller:null can be seen anytime there is a login failure with User Application or Reporting.    This is due to invalid, or missing credentials in the login-config.xml.  
 
An example of additional issue that was seen if you have User Application and Reporting running on the same server, and reinstall user application but not reporting.   When attempting to start reporting, the Unauthenticated caller:null is thrown in the log, due to missing credentials for reporting.    A reinstall of reporting, corrected the issue.

Cause

The password being used is not being decrypted the same as it was encrypted.  So the authentication fails.
