I am having a problem connecting my servlet to the database.
I am able to connect to the database using SQL Worksheet so it is a problem with the servlet. I using Jrun3 as webserver.

This is the error I get.

Io exception: Connection refused(DESCRIPTION=(TMP=)(VSNNUM=153093632)(ERR=12505)(ERROR_STACK=(ERROR=(CODE=12505)(EMFI=4))))

I have verified the username, pwd and instance and they are correct. Please help me. I am trying to resolve this since yesterday but it is not working.

The same code is working from another environment but not from my machine.

See if you are able to ping the database from your machine. It should be a network error as its working from other environment.

It sounds like a Database specific question.

Need some more details like,

- where is your DB reside, on a remote machine or locally?
- Code snippet?
- DB Vendor?
- JDBC Driver?
I agree. Here's the link:
