What error you come across?
What problem you have faced? You have not given more details?

Did you include the ".newInstance()" part?

Class.forName("oracle.jdbc.OracleDriver").newInstance();

More importantly is the JDBC file in the classpath?

This shouldn't be necessary. The driver registers itself when the class is loaded, and Class.forName() causes the target class to be loaded.

That's probably the question here.
