Edited 3 Years Ago by happygeek: fixed formatting

> Class.forName("oracle:jdbc:driver:OracleDriver"); There is no class which goes by the name of oracle:jdbc:driver:OracleDriver . Replace those : with . and you should be fine provided you have included the classes12.jar or some other thin oracle driver in your classpath.

Ha. ;-)

Din't really look at the class name. These classpath questions (at least because of other forums) have simply become knee-jerk reactions. ;-)
