iSQL*Plus is a browser based implementation of SQL*Plus. We can use it to connect to an Oracle database system over the Internet.
You can try using this code to connect a via jdbc driver using the code:
DriverManager.registerDriver(new oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver());
String url = "jdbc:oracle:thin:@yourserver:1521";
try {
String url1 = System.getProperty("JDBC_URL");
if (url1 != null)
url = url1;
} catch (Exception e) {
// If there is any security exception, ignore it and use default
// Connect to the database
Connection conn =
DriverManager.getConnection (url, "username", "password");
// Create a Statement here..

Hi Phateon,

While using ur code ORA error only occur ,
ORA-12514, TNS:listener does not currently know of service requested in connect descriptor
1521 is for oracle server only is it ? ?
but we didnt mention the service name so how it will work ..
is ur code is correct !!
It sure is correct. You will need the corresponding port where the database is located. Please ask your system administrator for information to the port.

what is isql Plus ??
As I have already said, iSQL*Plus is a browser based implementation of SQL*Plus. We can use it to connect to an Oracle database system over the Internet.
It is a web-based utility similar to the SQL*Plus command line utility for executing SQL and PL/SQL commands.
