Hi All,
I am getting this exception when i am trying to
run a simple java program from command line.

The database i am using Oracle8i Enterprise Edition.
Here is my source code.
import java.sql.*;
public class TestJdbc
public static void main (String[] args)
TestJdbc t1 = new TestJdbc();
if (args.length <= 0)
int id = new Integer(args[0]).intValue();
String fname = args[1];
String lname = args[2];
System.out.println("rows inserted = " +
t1.putData(id, fname,lname));
public int putData(int id,
String fname,
String lname)
String url= "jdbc racle:thin:@naga";
String driver =
int rowsInserted = 0;
Connection con = null;
con = DriverManager.getConnection
String sql = "INSERT INTO Emp
PreparedStatement pstmt =
rowsInserted = pstmt.executeUpdate();
catch (ClassNotFoundException e)
System.out.println("The Exception
is . " + e.getMessage());
catch (SQLException e)
System.out.println("The SQL
Exception is . " + e.toString());
catch (Exception e)
System.out.println("The Exception
is . " + e.toString());
return rowsInserted;
Any suggestions I am rattling with this issue for the last couple of hours.

Which line of code is throwing the exception?
If it is the connection, then it may be your Connection URL:
you are missing the Oracle instance name and the port that instance is listening( make sure Oracle is listening at this port too! ).
Proper URL Format:

your code only specifies the server.
