Please help me out to get answer to my production problem. My code(JDBC) gets database connection from oracle database. But if I change the database to alias name it does not recognise the database. I am using JDK 1.3 and oracle 8.0; Is it problem with version of JDBC i am using? Is JDBC version of JDK 1.3 support alias names for the database? Please reply soon.

nope. Connection woks with actual database name but not with the alias name. I learnt that oracle thin driver doesn't support this kind of failover and hence I tried with thick driver(OCI) but I did not get the result!! Thanks
