Hi Experts,

We have following two demantra installations on windows XP box -

When starting the tomcat for, we are getting the following error :

The tomcat for is working perfectly fine. Even we can connect to the database using command prompt. Can anyone point as why we are getting error - 'ORA-12514, TNS:listener does not currently know of service requested in connect descriptor' for one installation, but other is working just fine. Both installations are on the same database with sid - 'orcl', port -'1521' and hostname - 'localhost'.
