IOException while trying to connect to DB

I'm getting the following IOException while trying to connect to the DB from my web application using connection pooling.
Io exception: The Network Adapter could not establish the connection

But, am able to connect to the same DB from my Eclipse using the same following oracle thin driver statement.
jdbc racle:thin:@<server>:1521:<instance name>

I've also tried replacing the server name with ip and also with fully qualified dns name. But nothing worked. Please help.

Thanks & Regards,<br />Imthiaz Ahmed

Check whether the Database server is not running on MTS Mode. If yes,then you have to pass the jdbc URL to use dedicated connection explicitly .
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
