    Bug - Cannot connect to database with hyphen in ServiceName


      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.



      SqlDeveloper  Version Build MAIN-20.78
