I am using Oracle Thin driver to connect to Oracle database.
DriverManager.registerDriver(new oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver ());
con = DriverManager.getConnection
("jdbc racle:thin:@","scott","tiger");
The application I am making is goign to be a product , and as such the Oracle server IP address will be changing as well as user name and password.
So what should I do to avoid this as otherwise I have to compile my servlet everytime the server IP address is changing???

One solution for this problem is to use a properties file.
Create one simple text file like....
ipaddress = //the address
Seve it with " .properties" extension
& use java.util.ResourceBundle to access this ipaddress.
write these lines in your code
ResourseBundle r = ResourseBundle.getBundle("propertyfilename");
This will solve your problem...i.e whenever u want to connect to any server/machine...just change the respective address in properties u dont have to compile your program at all.
Hope this will solve your problem.
