Unfortunately, no more information is in the message I got:

[BEA][Oracle JDBC Driver]Error establishing socket to host and port: Reason: Connection refused: connect

My installation is a bit screwy. I can't run the web interface to OracleXE. The "listener" service doesn't start automatically, and my machine here at work is extremely locked down, so I can't start it. But SQL*Plus works fine.

So maybe the next step is to bug the admins to get the Listener service problem fixed.
