This is the most basic of JDBC/Oracle questions.
    I am attempting to communicate with an Oracle db with a Java applicaiton via JDBC. I cannot find any
    documentation from Oracle specifying the driver,or the subprotocol.

    The code i am using is below.  the call to Class.forName works,which means only that it found the class, not that it
    is necessarly the driver.

    the line:
    con = DriverManager.getConnection (strURL, "Username", "*******");
    generates an SQLException "No Suitable Driver" which tells the OracleDriver.class is not the driver, or that i need
    a
    subprotocol, or some other unknown.

    I am using Windows NT, Java 1.1.x, and Oracle 8 Personal Edition.  I am following an example from the book
    "JDBC Database Access with Java" by Hamiltion, Cattell, Fisher

    my question is can someone tell me where documentation telling what i need to know is (JDBC driver name for
    Oracle8, subprotocol)

from evijay
lease download oracle jdbc thin driver from oracle site and then install it. It has readme and a good number
      of examples which contain the driver name.

download just the jdbc thin driver., not the download with OCI and thin.
