I have a connection problem with Oracle on Windows98.Iam using the JDBC url and the Oracle driver to connect to the database.
Iam getting a network connection failed error.Does anybody know why this is happening?
Iam using Oracle8i personal edition on Windows98.I dont have any listeners configured.Do I need to do this?I figured that I need not do this , since Iam making JDBC calls from the same machine.Iam sure the JDBC url is right.Can anybody tell me why this is happening.

Is it an Oracle error number or a JDBC exception?


I have seen things you people would not believe, attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion, c-beams sparkling in the dark near the Tennhauser Gate. All these moments will be lost in time, like tears in the rain.

Works now. You need to start the listener service for oracle.
My bad

I thought you got an error saying the database didn't have listener running. Must be my imagination. Which driver are you using? Thin?
