I get an Invalid Oracle URL specified error connecting to an Oracle 8.1.7 database. I am Java 1.4.2 and the Oracle Database driver is 'j2sdk1.4.2'. I got on Oracle OTN to attempt to get another driver and the latest I find is for Java 1.2(class12.zip). Does this mean there is no driver available for Oracle 8.1.7 and Java 1.4.2? Bellow is by Oracle error.
----------------------------------------------------------

Connect String:jdbc:oracle:thin@1xx.xx.xxx.xxx:port:sid
Error Connecting to Database:xxxx
Connect String:jdbc:oracle:thin@999.99.999.999:5555:2222
SqlException:Invalid Oracle URL specified
SqlState    :null
Vendor Error:17067

I don't think you need to blank the port ;-) Please post again with it looking at bit more realistic

You should be able to use the machine name too. Let's say the Oracle server machine is called 'ray' and you can do

ping ray

Then you should be able to use

jdbc:oracle:thin@ray:nnnn

where 'nnnn' is the right port number
