Hi ,

I am using DBVisualizer for generating ER Diagrams for my DataBase tables .
While installing DBVisualizer onto my system we need to select a Oracle driver for our Oracle Database.
But when i selected the option of Oracle thin Driver it has asked me the path of the files .

( I don't know this so i adjusted with jdbc -odbc driver )

Please tell me what are the files i need to provide for it to let Oracle thin driver work.

they were probably asking for the JDBC driver .jar files that would come from Oracle.

If you have an oracle installation on your system, these will be inside the Oracle software folder, or you can download the one appropriate to your Oracle version from their site http://www.oracle.com/technology/software/tech/java/sqlj_jdbc/index.html

it used to be called classes12.jar, and later ojdbc14.jar I haven't used Oracle JDBC in a while, and it looks like there are a bunch of new kinds of flavors of these for Oracle 11 and different Java versions.
