Hello, Right now our database(oracle) and webpshere are both on winnt. Now the client wants the database on solaris how could we achive this connectivity b/w two diffrent os's , is this possible with thin driver, since we don't have solaris we will try it on linux redhat 6.2.
Sure, it's possible! Install WebSphere and Oracle client on your NT box and Oracle server on Solaris/Linux. ------------------ Tony Chen SCJP, ICS & ICSD (WebSphere)

Configure a DataSource connect to the Oracle client on your NT, and have the Oracle client talk to Oracle Server on Solaris/Linux. Sorry, I'm not a Oracle guy, so please consult you Oracle DBA for more Oracle specific instructions. ------------------ Tony Chen SCJP, ICS & ICSD (WebSphere)
