Well i too have very little knowledge as far as jdbc is concerned but i am using 10g too for my backend purpose .Well you can set up a dns for oracle just like you did for access but i would recommend you to go for the Type 4 driver than an ODBC bridge as Type 4 are much faster. take a look here
hope it helps
