I have installed oracle 9i personal on my system and have no problems runng SQL sql querries on it.

I have also downloaded jdbc oracle thin drivers to my desktop.

I am using JCreator as my IDE, how do I configure/ install the driver so that it allows me to querry the database from my application? Do I have to place the driver in a specific folder/ path etc??

You will have to tell JCreator where to find the JAR file for the driver, i.e. you'll need to add it to the classpath, however that's done in JCreator.
