Business View Manager - Update Data connection links - help?

Hello. In BV Manager, each time a new business view is imported in, all of the data connection passwords are cleared and have to be manually re-entered in again. We have more than 10 data connections and each one takes about 5-10 minutes to save. It's time consuming and painful because of the downtime and manpower it takes to do this every time.

1) Is there any way to prevent the data connection password from being cleared during the BV import?

2) Is there any other way to get the passwords put back in outside of BV Manager?

3) Are there any tools (SAP or 3rd party) that can update the passwords?

4) If there is no third party tool, can you suggest how this might be accomplished using Java API calls?

Any help is appreciated!

Our current version is
SAP BusinessObjects BI Platform 4.1 Support Pack 5
