Dear All, Hey, I have been developing code using jdbc for quite some time. However recently I have been facing a problem after upgrading my system. I am using the following configuration: Windows 2000 Professional Edition Oracle 8i for (Windows NT) 8.1.6 (i think) JDK 1.3 (HotsSpot JVM) I am getting problem while making a connection to the database. The programme (sort of) hangs when the connection line is executed. I have checked this using System.out at different connection stages. Also, I am using simple ODBC32 from the win2000 control panel. I get throught the registration part using: Class.forName("sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver"); My connection object is like this: Connection con=driverManager.getConnection("jdbc dbc:MyDSN", "userid", "password"); I was working with this application absolutely fine, but earlier, but now it does not work. However, changing the DSN to point at an Access database solves the problem. It gives no problem then. Please help. I need to somehow work around with Oracle 8i, JDK1.3, JDBC. Thanks a lot. Bye, Tualha Khan
In Oracle 8i, there should be a JDBC directory under %ORACLE_HOME%. There is documentation in there. You will need to do something like put classes12.zip in your classpath and figure out the JDBC URL to use in your code. The document explains how to do this.
