jdbc connection through Windows OS Authentication

We are trying to use jdbc to connect to an Oracle database using Windows OS Authentication.  When using Windows OS Authentication, we don't need to specify the password.

When we try to connect with the jdbc thin client, it says that it will not work without a password specified.

Is there a way to get the jdbc thin client to connect using Windows OS Authentication, or should we be using something like jdbc OCI, etc.?

If I remember it right, there were some security issues around this JDBC thin client using OS Authentication and oracle couldn't come up with a fix and they abandoned it in 9i. Not sure if they added it to 10g as a feature or not. I will have to check the JDBC docs to get a better answer.

Sorry mate. Here is what oracle says "Only the JDBC/OCI driver supports an OS authentication login connection." No support yet for OS authentication via JDBC thin client.
