Hey,

lets say i have a connection that i get from data source.

The connection is to user XXX.

can i change the user in run time?

In my sql i point the data source to localhost:3306 and set the schema (catalog) in run time, can i do something like this in oracle?

Avihai,
No. The connection is tied to a specific user. To change user, you need to get a new connection.

This is similar to how you have to reconnect to login with a different user id at the sql plus command line.
