I want to write a servlet to establish the database connection and to access the data from this database. I have oracle 8.0 installed on my system, could anyone please help me how to set up this Dsn name from the control panel on windows '95 and what should be the URL format for DriverManager.getConnection method
DriverManager.getConnection(?? , "scott", "tiger");
and what should be the string parameter in the following method
Class.forName(" ?? ").newInstance();
Also are there other than Sun's jdbc dbc driver?
Appreciate your help!

Oracle makes its own JDBC drivers (there are four different ones) and they will provide the documentation for using them. Check outtheir site to get the software and the documentation.
I agree. Here's the link:
