Dear All,
I am facing problem in connecting with my Oracle 8i EE. I am using JDK1.2.2. I am using windows
2000 professional edition.
When I try to connect using oracle thin driver, I get connected without any problem. But when I
try to use sun-odbc driver, or I use the oracle oci8 drivers, I get a error which says "java.exe
has generated errors and will now be closed by windows"
I got the following listing from the error log file:
Application exception occurred:
App: java.exe (pid=952)
When: 9/2/2000 @ 00:29:28.581
Exception number: c0000005 (access violation)

I get the partial output on the command prompt as:
Driver Registered

What is wrong?
Please help.

my java code is:
import java.sql.*;
public class tester
public tester()
System.out.println("Driver Registered");
//Connection con=DriverManager.getConnection("jdbcracle:thin:@gmd:1521:gmd","tualha","khan");
Connection con=DriverManager.getConnection("jdbcracleci8:tualha/khan@");
System.out.println("Connection Established");
catch(Exception ex)
System.out.println("Exception is : "+ex);
public static void main(String args[])
new tester();
