    Bug - Cannot connect to database with hyphen in ServiceName

    e0e382d2-cb20-42ed-94f7-77bb8f4bf2fc

      When using Oracle SQLDeveloper if I try to connect to a database with a hyphen in the ServiceName I am faced with the following problem:

       

      IOError: Invalid connection string format, a valid format is: "host:port:sid"

       

      Connecting to any other database we use that does not have a hyphen in the ServiceName works fine using the Basic Connection type.

      At the moment I'm getting around this by placing the connection in a tns connection identifier however I find the basic connection type much simpler to work with.

       

      Details:

      SqlDeveloper  Version 4.1.3.20 Build MAIN-20.78
