Oracle Database Connection

Specifies the options to access an Oracle database.

Oracle database

You can use a JDBC driver to access an Oracle database from Solaris or Linux. To access the database from Windows, you need an ODBC driver.

In the Data source URL box, enter the location of the Oracle database server. The syntax of the URL depends on the database type. See the documentation that came with the JDBC driver for more information.

For an Oracle database, the syntax of the URL is:


Name of the Oracle database

Enter the name of the Oracle database.

Server URL

Enter the URL for the database server.

Port number

Enter the port number for the database server.

Oracle JDBC Driver Class

Enter the name of the JDBC driver.
