Specifies the options to access an 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.
On UNIX, ensure that the Oracle database client is installed with JDBC support. The JDBC driver class for the Solaris Oracle client version 8.x is located in the <Oracle client>/product/jdbc/lib/classes111.zip directory. You can also download the latest version of the driver from the Oracle web site.
Enter the name of the Oracle database. Ask your database administrator for the correct name.

Enter the port number for the database server. Ask your database administrator for the correct port address.
Enter the name of the JDBC driver.
