Dear all, I need to connect to the local Personal Oracle7 on my Windows98. The Oracle driver gets registered ok by calling Class.forName("oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver"); Now I need to call DriverManager.getConnection(url,userid,pswd); What should I set the string url to, to connect to my local Personal Oracle7 ? Please help... Thanks in advance Ambrose Tati
If you are going to use the thin drivers, then the URl would be jdbcracle:thin:@DATABASE_NAME:PORT:SID ( Just fill in your database_name, port and SID values) if you are using OCI drivers, then use jdbcracleci7:@database_name for the URL
Hope this helps. Chitra [This message has been edited by Chitra Sundaram (edited November 16, 2000).]
In case you are using a thin driver, you should explicitly start the listener. It does not start a listener by itself. On personal oracle 8, the command is "TNSLSNR80". You can run it from a dos prompt. It will leave an empty screen open, just minimize it. After that process is running, youcan connect with the JDBC/Thin Driver. Regards Ram
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
