I'm new to JDBC also...
I tried compiling my java program but encountered a problem like this... cannot resolve symbol
symbol : class OracleDriver
location: package jdbc
DriverManager.registerDriver(new oracle.jdbc.OracleDriver());
If I need a driver for this where can I get the driver? Thanks....

You need to download the Oracle JDBC driver from and include it (the .zip file) in your application's classpath.
