Hi

I wanted to find about if there is any way about in the creation of JDBC
Connection to Oracle DB using the login credentials of External Oracle User
who uses Windows Authentication.

We had created some external oracle users and I would like to find out if there is any way to connect to oracle through their credentials using JDBC

Thanks
Karthik

Off hand I want to say yes but it might be difficult to set up. According to the Oracle JDBC FAQ the thin client supports LDAP authentication which it sounds like is what you would need to authenticate a windows based user. No details on how to do it though.
