Creating a datasource connection to Oracle 9i in JRun 3.1

I'm running JRun 3.1 and I'm trying to configure a JDBC datasource to an oracle data base. I specify the user, password, DBUrl and Driver name.

oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver
jdbc:oracle:thin:@server:port:sid

After I set up the DS I bounce the server and test the data source and get the very descriptive error:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
"The following error has occured while testing the datasource connection:"

oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The classes12.zip file is in the JRun classpath (I can create a connection to this DB from with in a JSP using the same url and driver)

Where can I look to find a more discriptive error message or does anyone konw the issue.
(PS I was able to set up a SQL Server 2000 datasource using the same method)

Any Ideas?

Well after doing a bit more work on it I found that even though the test failed I could use the datasource in my programs. I think that mabey when it tests the connections its looks for a particular table that might not exist in the Schema I'm pointing to.
