Hello,
Many posts in this forum discussed about connection to Oracle with url= jdbc:oracle:thin:@host:1521:sid.
If the Oracle databse is in the local machine, and I only know the dbname, can I write the url as jdbc:oracle:thin:@dbname ?

I'm sure you can use 'localhost' or '127.0.0.1' for the host.

The correct way is:
jdbc racle:thin:@localhost:1521:yourdb
You can use 127.0.0.1 or localhost in the connection string
