String url="jdbc:oracle:thin:@localhost:1521:scott";

That scott above should be the database name, not the user id.

A small modification, in the connection string it's not exactly the dbname, rather it's the service id.

So far as I know using a sid a particular oracle instance is identified, i.e. the address where it's located, protocol being used etc.

If you go to administrative tools-services, you should get the names of oracle services running.

Each particular sid is mapped to a particular db instance, and accordingly you have to configure listeners in tnsnames.ora. For e.g. if you have a db instance running as orcl, you may configure a sid in tnsnames.ora as orcl, and if you have another db instance running as mydatabase, you need to configure a sid for this too.

Are you talking about the server side, or the client side?

I haven't worked much with oracle. But as far as my knowledge goes tnsnames.ora is configured at client side. Correct me if I am wrong.

If you use the thin client, no tnsnames configuration on client side is required.

from http://blogs.oracle.com/theshortenspot/2009/04/advanced_oracle_jdbc_connectio.html

jdbc:oracle:thin:@[hostname]:[dbport]:[database]

where
[hostname] - Database hostname
[dbport] - Database Listener portname
[database] - Database Name
