Hi, This is my program portion which gives the error
conn = DriverManager.getConnection(
"jdbc : oracle : oci8:@shree",
"scott", "tiger");
shree is my sid in the oracle database.
I am working in
c:\java\jdbc\pgms
All the unzipped personal oracle is in
c:\java\jdbc\pgms\oracle
The full oracle stuff is at
c:\oracle....
I am able to compile my program, but when running it, the error is :
Exception in thread main java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError no ocijdbc8 in java.library.path
I have included classes12.zip in the classpath and
c:\oracle\ora81\jdbc\lib in the path

I am not able to run any demos that come with personal oracle since they give the same problem.
Is there anything wrong with my directory structure? What should I do ?
I am working in Win 98. I checked the FAQ at technet.oracle.com
and it says i should check whether I have shared object files and ORACLE_HOME\LIB is in my path. I guess shared object files is not needed for me as i am working in Windows. Also , in another FAQ i was told that I should include the environment variable LD_CLASS_PATH to ORACLE_HOME\bin. I did that too.
I am assuming that ORACLE_HOME is c:\oracle\ora81. Is that correct?

Thanks for the help,
Shree.
