This is not supported. I doubt that it is possible at all (to extract password from SQL Developer config).

The 'oracle sqldeveloper' stores all the connection details in an xml file ie. connections.xml.
If you want to have a backup for the connection details, you will have to navigate to

In windows XP
C:\Documents and Settings\<YourUserName>\Application Data\SQL Developer\systemX.X.X.X.X\o.jdeveloper.db.connection.X.X.X.X.X.X.X\

In Windows 7
C:\Users\<YourUserName>\AppData\Roaming\SQL Developer\systemX.X.X.X.X\o.jdeveloper.db.connection.X.X.X.X.X.X.X\

and take a backup of connections.xml .

Later, if you need to use the same connections on some other machine, you may simply copy the <Reference ...> tags for respective connections.
