Hi all,
I have seen similar posts and replies but they are 2-3 years old. Are there any recent instructions on how to connect a Java application to Oracle 8i's Enterprise Edition? I have both installed on my standalone PC running Windows98 at home and am practicing. I already have MS Access and want to move on to Oracle. Thanks in advance.

Dave,
Oracle have a JDBC driver for use with JRE version 1.4 which is available for download from:
http://otn.oracle.com/software/tech/java/sqlj_jdbc/content.html
I hope this helps you -- since I'm not sure that this answers your question (because your question was unclear to me).
Good Luck,
Avi.

Hi,
I will start w/ the download but I guess what I need to know is if there are step by step instructions to creating the syntax in the Java application to make the application interact with the Oracle database? I can create the tables with the appropriate keys in Oracle. The part I am less familiar with is the actual Java syntax to interact with the database. JavaRanch has the database tutorial to interact with Access and I have an application that does interact with an Access database. I understand and feel comfortable with this part. What I want to do is take the next step and have an application interact with an Oracle database. Thanks.

Dave,
In case you didn't notice, the Web page (whose URL I gave you in my previous reply) also contains hyperlinks to other Web pages with documentation and sample code and discussion forums.
I am quite certain that you will find more htan enough sample code in those Web pages to get you going.
Also, you should have a "jdbc\demo" subdirectory in your Oracle installation that contains sample code.
Hope this helps.
Good Luck,
Avi.

Hi again,
Thanks for the further clarification. No, I didn't notice that at first but I was at work and trying to reply while looking over my shoulder, if you know what I mean, at the same time. I will look at the info on the site.
Regards,
ddave
