 Are you sure the OracleDriver class is in the classes12.zip file? Have you also tried to include it explicitly in your classpath by adding the -cp option?

  Hope it helps.

Now im having this Exception instead:
"Invalid URL: Driver type not specified"

Ok, i think i solved that as well.
I have been trying to connect to the wrong port!
After i corrected that mistake, its working fine now.

Thanks for your response anyway.
