I imported the ojdbc14.jar into the library and tried to connect to the Oracle server, but for some reason I catch the SQLException, please help. I once connected to this oracle server and it worked fine, but now I catch this SQLException. Here's my code below:


Connection conn;
String serverName = "localhost";
String username = "Scott";
String password = "Tiger";
String connectionURL = null;

try
{
Class.forName("oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver");
connectionURL = "jdbc:oracle:thin:@" + serverName;
conn=DriverManager.getConnection(connectionURL,username,password);
System.out.println( "Connected......." );
}
catch (SQLException y)
{
System.err.println( "Failed to load JDBC/ODBC driver." );
}
catch (ClassNotFoundException g)
{
System.err.println( "The class was not found" );
}

An exception has a name, a number, an associated message.
The purpose of these is to help to know what is the problem.
Wihtout these you can't know what is the problem and your only option is to pray.

This is the exception I'm getting, I also need to know if there's something wrong with my code.

Why do you think it has anything to do with SQL?

I changed the message where I catch the SQLException to display the name of the exception and it shows that its a SQL exception. I changed the code to:

try {
Class.forName("oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver");
connectionURL = "jdbc:oracle:thin:@" + serverName;
conn=DriverManager.getConnection(connectionURL,username,password);
System.out.println( "Connected......." );
}

catch (SQLException y)
{
System.err.println(y );
}

What's the content of serverName?

[Edit: Sorry, just now I see it in the first post]

The URL should also contain a portnumber and SID

Hi Frank

The content of serverName is: "DEV1" which is the name of my Oracle server.

ORA-12505: TNS:listener does not currently know of SID given in connect descriptor
 *Cause:  The listener received a request to establish a connection to a
 database or other service. The connect descriptor received by the listener
 specified a SID for an instance (usually a database instance) that either
 has not yet dynamically registered with the listener or has not been
 statically configured for the listener. This may be a temporary condition
 such as after the listener has started, but before the database instance
 has registered with the listener.
 *Action:
  - Wait a moment and try to connect a second time.
  - Check which instances are currently known by the listener by executing:
    lsnrctl services <listener name>
  - Check that the SID parameter in the connect descriptor specifies
    an instance known by the listener.
  - Check for an event in the listener.log file.

Michel

Hm...
Sounds kinda sad to me. You got an error and did not search for it. The only thing Michel did was copy-paste the description of the error from the Oracle documentation.
Not to belittle Michel's response, but if that's a lifesaver to you, you might review your development skills..

[Edit: Reread my reply; it's looking harsher than I mean it; Did not mean to offend, I just was surprised by your cheerful response to quite a standard reply]

Do you mean you still use jdbc:oracle:thin:@DEV1 as URL? (I ask this out of curiosity, because I never seen a jdbc-url used like this)
I don't consider giving people a tip, which leads to other faults because of their misconfigured environments failing. Besides, I don't mind "failing", since it teaches me.
But like I said, I did not want to offend you; apparently my post was indeed too harsh, since it seems you felt offended anyway. Sorry for that then.

I'm sorry too Frank.

The truth is I need senior developer's like yourself to tell me what the better way of doing things. As I said: I only started development recently, I used to do support and a bit of DBA. Please tell me what's the best way to construct my URL? Just give me what u think its best and if possible please give me some web sources where I can learn stuff.

Thanx

If it works with whatever URL you use now, it works Smile

The construction I showed you, is the way jdbc-url's are normally constructed.
The top URL for Oracle related stuff really is Google. You can find most anything through it. Combine your search terms with the term "oracle" and a world of solutions opens up.
All Oracle documentation can be found at http://tahiti.oracle.com

And of course, always feel free to ask questions here at OraFAQ!
