Connecting to Database without a DSN

How to connect to the database through a java application running in a client machine without a DSN. I mean can we access to a database in the server like we access through servlets.
I am using the following strings
String url = "jdbc racle:thin:@SERVER's IP ADDRESS:PORT:SERVICE_NAME";
Class.forName("oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver").newInstance();
con = DriverManager.getConnection(url, "mis", "mis");
But I am getting the following Exception
oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver
I am using same Strings and driver to access the database through servlets and its working properly.
Its very urgent. If any one can help me, Please.
Regards Mahua

HI,
Try this instead of the ClassforName() technique:
DriverManager.registerDriver(new oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver());
its from the Oracle docs.
Hope that helps,
Terry
