Hi all,
I am facing a strange problem with drivermanager.getconnection.
I am trying to connect to the Oracle in my machine and it is not happening.
Previously, say in the last week I was getting the connection and I was working also.
But today no connection is coimg.
the error is Network Adapter couldn't establish the connection.
Any idea...

Are u able to connect to the db in question normally (i.e. without going via Java/JDBC)? Can u see the target machine from your machine?
I don't think the problem is with the code using DriverManager.getConnection, I think it is some kind of local network error.
