I am a new user of ubuntu 12.04 and installed oracle database XE in it but need to connect it to my simple JDBC program where it requires user dsn .
I am not able to find any solution on the net as tried last few hours and want to complete the project as soon as possible.
Kindly guide me to create a user/System dsn in ubuntu 12.04 for oracle XE.

It looks like you're trying to use ODBC, but the correct way would be to connect to the database using Oracle's own JDBC driver. You don't need DSN for that. You'd just modify the connection string in your program. Have a look at oracle xe jdbc connect string to find out what the connect string should look like.
