Hi Art,
I'm testing JDBC thin driver with oracle supplied code on my machine, which does not have oracle 8i. But I'm trying to connect to a Oracle 8i server.
I'm getting following error(I've pasted the full commandline statements here), do you have an idea.
C:\Neha>java JdbcCheckup
Please enter information to test connection to the database user: muser
password: muser
database(a TNSNAME entry):
Connecting to the database...Connecting...

Have you checked if your class path has a reference to the Oracle package?
I agree. Here's the link:
