Did you set up an ODBC connection to your database? Oracle provides 4 different JDBC drivers to connect directly to an Oracle database. Maybe you should look into one of them. There's tons of source and documentation at the Oracle Technology Network

Oracle is one of the best documented technologies out there. Do a search on google to find many helpful resources. Some other links that may help you get started:

Oracle9i JDBC Developer's Guide and Reference - the most complete and detailed java --> oracle JDBC reference I've seen to date
Basic JDBC Samples
Advanced JDBC Samples
JDBC How-To Documents
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
