The jdbc url for thin drivers is.
Connection con= DriverManager.getConnection(
"jdbc racle:thin:@dbhostname ort:sid","username","password").
SID stands for System Identifier. which identifies the specific oracle database instance to which you want to connect.
Are u using correct dbhostname,port,SID.username and password are according to software instalation.
I hope u r using oracle 8i .Along with this software u will get thin drivers.
To find the hostname and sid in oracle8.
go to
start -->programs -->oracle for winnt -->oracle net8 easy config
click that one. In Next screen give Yes.The next screen is
welcome to service name wizard.In that (Choose actions) select modify radio button and in (existing services) choose available servers(any one). Next screen is Select Networking Protocol
In that one choose tcp/ip. next screen is u will find out the dbhostname and port number. Note down the dbhostname and port and next screen is sid(system identifier).note down the sid.
In oracle8i
start-->programs-->oracle_default_home1 -->network administration
-->net8 assistant-->net 8 confifuration.
In this u will get local.Click the local,the service naming will appear. Click it u will get all the available service names.
Click any one , then u will get the service name, dbhostname,port.
If u have problem please ask your database administrator about the dbhostname,port,sid.
If u r working on oracle 8i the thin driver will be coming along with the software.i don't know about the oracle8.
The classpath what u have specified is o.k.,
All the best.
Inform if u got any problem regarding this.
