Hello everybody, Does anybody know how can i use a different Oracle JDBC driver within JDeveloper? If i remove the Oracle JDBC library from the project (JDeveloper uses version 220.127.116.11.0) and add the classes12.zip file (version 8.1.7 drivers) to the WEB-INF lib directory and run the application, it still uses the driver from JDeveloper. I now have removed the JDBC directory from my JDeveloper installation and enduring a some errors (no datasource will work, JDeveloper can't connect to a database), the application now works correctly. How can i do this 'the right way'? Without losing JDeveloper functionality and getting the 'old' Oracle JDBC drivers (which don't contain some very annoying bugs). Regards, Robert Willems of Brilman
JDeveloper is the most stupid IDE in the world. Cause When config the 3rd party jdbc. I chose a correct driver name but wrong (libary)package. after I click ok. I could never change the driver' libary. the driver's name is already in a drop-down list. It could not be removed or redefined. when I try to redefined the driver. it popup a message told me the driver has been defined. how stupid it is. [ April 04, 2004: Message edited by: Dasong ]
Here is how you can remove a jdbc driver entry. 1) close jdeveloper. 2) edit ~/jdevhome/system18.104.22.168.1107/settings.xml, find the driver name and remove from <Item> ......</Item>, save your changes and exit. 3) start jdeveloper, you will see the driver name is no longer there. Do not edit settings.xml with jdeveloper opened, because jdeveloper will save all settings when you close it.

strange, in above email, I typed remove from \<Item\> ...\</Item\> become ......, I guess it is the angled parenthesis escape.
