Very Urgent please.....Not able to load Oracle Driver


EJB programming & troubleshooting: Very Urgent please.....Not able to load Oracle Driver

  1. Hi all,

         I have installed Websphere3.5 and want to connect it to
    oracle81 database.I have made changes in admin.config file of the Websphere like dburl,dbuser,dbdriver,dbpassword,dbschema ..etc.Also i have placed file in /lib/ directory of websphere.

      Even with all these changes,i am not able to load the oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver.

    The tracefile shows an exception saying that it can not load oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver.

    If someone could trace out my problem and give me an suitable suggestion,i shall remain grateful to you.

    Thanks in advance,


  2. Check your classpath once.....
  3. Open the Admin console.
    There will be an option for creating JDBC driver.
    After creating the JDBC driver, configure the DSN.
    Then right click the jdbc driver, you will see an option for installing the driver. It will ask you for the location for the driver. Do that and your program should work fine.

    There is no need to change in the admin.conf file.

  4. Should you be using (depending on your JDK version ofcourse) ?
