Although I agree with you that sometimes it better to hide the complexity in tnsnames.ora and/or sqlnet.ora, in todays world that’s not always possible anymore. Mostly because access to the OS or file system as an application is not guaranteed anymore. Not that this is anything new. Already back in 2007 when we developed a J2EE system for the financial industry (before my time at Oracle) we would have wished for the connection string that we used in the connection pools to be smarter.

Files unfortunately are not application runtime changes friendly, unless you build the apps that way, which of course most folks don’t.
