Just downloaded SQLcl 18.1.1 today and can't get it to connect to my databases. The database is an Exadata cluster and I have production and development instances setup in tnsnames.ora. I'm consistently getting the following error.

SQL> conn [email protected]?

Using the same TNS file and attempting to connect through SQLcl Release RC it works just fine. Anyone have any idea what might be going on here? Is this a bug in the new version?

    Hello, Earl Lewis

    How do you set your .bash_profile on Oracle user?

    Maybe $ORACLE_HOME conflicts with $JAVA_HOME, you can use '#' to cancel that line of ORACLE_HOME and retry it again.

    Best Regards

    Update (Jul 03, 2018):

    Although canceling $ORACLE_HOME in .bash_profile on Oracle user, I don't think that it's a good workaround because a series of oracle command (such as sqlplus, rman, lsnrctl ...) don't conveniently use.

    The best solution trouble-shooting this issue is that you could install SQLcl 18.1.1 to another OS user SQLCL (If so, $JAVA_HOME (from user SQLCL) doesn't conflict with $ORACLE_HOME/jdk (from user ORACLE).

    The following is several operation steps,

    ...for example, using the bash shell. (Why don't connect to my Oracle DB via SQLcl 18.1.1 )

    Note: If you choose to copy/paste the sql shell script from above, make sure you don NOT have trailing spaces after the "\" line continuation characters in your script.
