JDBC and Firewalls

Could someone point me towards some resources on how to use JDBC to tunnel through a firewall. I'm particularly interested in knowing how I would structure the URL for the DriverManager.getConnection() statement.

As long as the host on which you are trying to make a connection from to the database has access to the database sitting behind the firewall, you do not have to do anything specific to get database connection.
For example: If you are using Oracles thin driver, this is how you make connection to the Database.
DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:oracle:thin:@ipaddressofthedatabaseserver:portnumber:databasename", "username", "password" ) ;
Hope this helps.
