Any luck with this? I am running 1.5.5 Build MAIN-5969 on Windows 7, and see the same error when trying to use a custom JDBC URL
Have you tried putting your descriptor into the tnsnames.ora and using it from there ?
If it's in the tnsnames.ora, you can pick it from the drop list which will still use the thin driver. Or enter the name into the Connection Identifier text field will will then use the thick driver.
therefore you need a complete installed oracle client.
we tried to use it only with sqldeveloper, and my be some libs and jars.
and you think you have the full URL correct.
I'm not sure if you're including the quotes as an example or you have the hostname correctly set. I'm using the advanced setting successfully.
(ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = sueharperlaptop.uk.oracle.com)(PORT = 1521))
(SID = dev11gr1)
I am not using the same jdbc drivers, so not giving you an accurate comparison, but it's worth starting with the URL.
thank a lot for your reply,
but i've tried some other versions too.
With and without ADDRESS_LIST . It's not really necessary .
Yes - the connections work fine when I put them in tnsnames.ora. This used to work when I was running Windows XP, Vista, and OpenSUSE Linux, but no longer works under Windows 7 x64. I suspect some Java/os compatibility issue going on here.
