I am attempting to map an entity ejb to an existing table in Oracle 8i.
For this while trying to create a connection to a remote database on
Oracle using a thin driver, WebSphere Studio Application Developer is
unable to create a connection.
While making the connection it shows the following message on the
'loading the database metadata...'
but then it stops responding.
However, There is no problem while connecting to a local DB2 UDB.
Kindly provide a solution to this.

When making a new connection from the DBExplorer, the following
settings are provided:

Connection Name: Oracon
Database : dbn002
UserID : userid
Password : password
Database Vendor Type : Oracle8i, V8.1.7
Host : ip address
Optional Port No : 1621
Server Name : ( Non-editable Field )
JDBC Driver Class racle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver
Class Location : D:\a020\

Connetion URL : jdbc racle:thin:@ipaddress:1621 bn002 (Non-editable Field)

I had similar situation. But, I waited long long time (more than 30 mts). Evenutally, it did connect. I guess your database must be an existing/old database with lots of users and db objects. I think WSAD is querying all the meta data and loads into the db viewer and it takes long time to load it.
I had tried to connect to 2 different databases. One is a test database with only 5 tables and another our existing legacy database. For the test databse, it took less than a minute to connect and for the other one it took more than 30 mts.

I have the same problem trying to connect to an Oracle 8.1.6 database. It simply hangs when trying to "loading jdbc metadata...". I know my drivers are good because the connectivity works everywhere but WSAD. Any more ideas?

Wow, it just went through. I guess the trick is to let stay idle for about 30 minutes... even if it says "Not Responding"
