Hi , Thanks for replying I am using apache tomcat 5.0.24. I am using driver jdbc : oracle:thin @ server : port:sid,username,password
I want the thin driver to read from tnsnames.ora file To do that the above driver would become jdbc : oracle:thin@hostString,password where hostString is taken from tnsnames.ora file But this give me an Io Exception :So Exception was generated.
If instead of "thin" driver i type "oci" .It works fine. But i want to use thin driver. Please help out. [ September 15, 2004: Message edited by: Bear Bibeault ]
JDBC thin driver does not use tnsnames.ora to make a connection. Using a tnsname here instead of the SID is quite an easy error to make. If it is a name in your TNS file, then replace the host string name with the network name of the Oracle server. That should resolve your problem.
Also, to add to this, some extra info with regard to OCI and Thin driver is...
The JDBC OCI driver provides an implementation of the JDBC interfaces using the Oracle Call Interface (OCI). The JDBC OCI driver requires an Oracle client installation including Net8.
The JDBC Thin driver establishes a direct connection to the database server using Java Sockets. The JDBC Thin driver does not require Oracle software on the client side; however, there must be an Oracle listener process correctly installed on the Oracle server.
Hope this helps.
