Hi all,

Firstly i would like to know where can i download a free jdbc type4 Driver. and the process to use it with oracle 8i without DSN. I am using Tomcat 4.1.
I am using a External File called database.properties where it will have the details about the driver name and its url as follows



where olrt happens to be a package.
My question is how to provide the olrt.database.url for the driver for oracle as its mentioned for sql above.

secondly how does my driver gel with the database.. or how does my driver gets to know about my database.

Expecting your replies at the earliest

Thank you

Ranch Hand

Oracle's type 4 driver (purely java) is available freely in www.oracle.com.
It is called thin driver.
