Oracle10g connexion rejected from SQLPower Architec.

I do not know ... I can work with TOAD but SQL Power Architect is rejecting the connexion.
I just download from Oracle several ojdbc thin drivers but when I am tring to add the jdbc driver it seems it is failing : I specify the location of the new driver in the PC (running MS-Windows/XP) but still does not work.

The message JDBC Drive "oracle.jdbc.OracleDriver" not found is displayed so a new connection cannot be create.

Could anyone help me?

I've never heard about SQLPower.  Maybe some other Experts have and will be along later.

There is a thread about this exact same error in the link below.

Looks like you need to verify the Java information under Preferences.

Hopefully it will help.

If it worked can I ask why the "B" penalty grade?

There is no reason. Really I did not know it was  so important  sorry.
BY the way I downloaded  the ojdb14.jar from oracle and not very sure if there is no another better as it seems the communications fails sometimes but not sure if  it is for another reason. Just saying I am still testing and also downloading another product :SQL Power Wabit that also works following your recommendations ... works, that is a new connection to another Oracle DataBase located in anther server is established.

I do not know, thanks anyway if I can change something, because you helped me a lot.

Thanks for getting back to me.

>>Really I did not know it was  so important  sorry.

Grades are important to the volunteers here.  They are directly related to the points the Experts receive.

Please review:

If after reviewing the link above, if you feel the grade needs to be changed, post back and I can take care of it for you.

>>not very sure if there is no another better as it seems the communications fails sometimes

Oracle would be the source I would use for Java drivers since Oracle sort of owns Java.

I can't say if one is 'better' and any other.  I'm not a Java person.
