Using oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver to connect from my Java app.
The ResultSetMetaData method getTableName() is returning an empty String, although columns names, values come across fine.
Anyone see this before?

This is a known problem with OracleDriver. As far as I know, an enhancement request has already been filed on this.

Hi menon,

I am particularly interested to know how a request was made for enhancement in the driver? even I want to submit a bug / enhancement in the Driver implementation and cant figure out how.

Thanks in advance.

Deependra & RajaniKanth,
Note that the original question was from four years ago. The original posters probably aren't watching this thread anymore. Also, it is ok to start a new thread for a new question. is now standard and can be downloaded from the Oracle site.
