Oracle - Old syntax for connection string when using Database Development perspective [message #901817] Tue, 14 August 2012 12:52 Go to next message

Hello Everyone,

I'm having some issues using the database development perspective for our Oracle database. The wizard asks for an SID which is part of the old syntax for connecting. I would like to use the service name instead but the wizard does not allow you to do so and it greys out the input box for the connection url so I can't do it manually.

Essentially, I'd like to do this:
jdbc:oracle:thin:@//HOST:PORT/SERVICE

But it generates this:
jdbc:oracle:thin:@HOST:PORT:SID

Is there a file I can go into and correct the connection url? It won't let me connect with the generated connection url.

Thanks!

The wizard you're asking about is not implemented by JDT.

Hi Stephan,

Thanks, I figured I might be posting in the wrong spot. Could you point me to the right forum?

Thanks.

You didn't even tell which wizard you are using.
What Eclipse features are you using? EclipseLink? Web Tools? I don't know who provides a database development perspective.

If you really don't know which component contributes that functionality, open the wizard hit Alt-Shift-F1 and it will tell you which classes implement the wizard. From the package names you should be able to deduce more information.

HTH,
Stephan

Figured out the issue and where I should have posted. It belongs to DTP.

To fix the problem I had use the Oracle Other Driver instead of the Oracle Thin Driver.
