Gentlemen,

I am getting a SQL Exception when trying to obtain a jdbc connection using the JDBC libraries of the OCI9 Oracle client.

Since I am using the C:\j2sdk1.4.2_03 SDK in Weblogic(JAVA_HOME value), I included this in my Weblogic classpath:

set CLASSPATH=%CLASSPATH%;%ORACLE_HOME%\ojdbc14.jar;%ORACLE_HOME%\ojdbc14_g.jar;%ORACLE_HOME%\ocrs12.jar;
set CLASSPATH=%CLASSPATH%;%ORACLE_HOME%\nls_charset12.jar;

where ORACLE_HOME is an environment variable set as c:\oracle\ora92\bin

and in my path (this path contains the ocijdbc9.dll):
set PATH=.;%WL_HOME%\server\bin;%JAVA_HOME%\bin;%PATH%;C:\oracle\ora92\bin;

The JDBC code I am using is

Connection con = null;
      Statement workStmt = null;
 try{
              
       Properties props = new Properties();
      props.put("user","BizAgiVision");
      props.put("password", "BizAgi");
      props.put("dll", "ocijdbc9");
      props.put("protocol", "oci9");
      
      Driver myDriver = (Driver)Class.forName("oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver").newInstance();
      
      DriverManager.registerDriver(myDriver);
      String connectionURL = "jdbc:oracle:oci9:@(description=(address=(host=devt_oracle)(protocol=tcp)(port=1521))(connect_data=(SID=BizAgiOr)))";
      
      con =    DriverManager.getConnection(connectionURL, props);

                Code continues..

UNFORTUNATELY, I AM GETTING THE EXCEPTION:

java.sql.SQLException: URL de Oracle especificada invßlida (TRANSLATED BY MYSELF AS: "specified URL for Oracle is not valid")
        at oracle.jdbc.dbaccess.DBError.throwSqlException(DBError.java:168)
        at oracle.jdbc.dbaccess.DBError.throwSqlException(DBError.java:210)
        at oracle.jdbc.dbaccess.DBError.throwSqlException(DBError.java:273)
        at oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver.connect(OracleDriver.java:182)
        at java.sql.DriverManager.getConnection(DriverManager.java:512)
        at java.sql.DriverManager.getConnection(DriverManager.java:140)
        at com.testing.session.stateless.FundsManagerStatelessBean.addFunds(Fund
sManagerStatelessBean.java:98)

DO YOU KNOW WHAT THE PROPER CONNECTION STRING WOULD BE FOR OCI9? this string worked in another machine but for
the OCI8 protocol.

Thanks.

Umm.. I am using this one.

jdbc:oracle:thin:@(description=(address=(host=devt_oracle)(protocol=tcp)(port=1521))(connect_data=(sid=BizAgiOr)))
