Problem connecting to Database

Hi All,

While working on a JDBC code today, I got the following exception while creating a connection with Oracle: access denied ( connect,resolve)

After looking through many forums and lots of googling, I found out the solution and added the following line in the .java.policy file:

grant {
permission "", "connect, resolve";

The code is working fine now, but just wanted to know why this problem started occurring after so many years of coding in JDBC since this wasn't the first time I was creating a connection and testing it.

I did not install/uninstall anything at my end.

Any answers??

I guess you're either calling the JDBC driver from inside an applet or an application that uses a security manager.

I agree. Here's the link:
