Problems with Oracle JDBC

Hi we are trying to connect to a Oracle 8.1.7 Database using JDBC via XMII 12.04

We have deployed Oracle JDBC ojdbc14.jar

I have set up this connection

Connector IDBC


ConnectorType SQL

DatePrefix TO_DATE('

DateSuffix ','MM/DD/YYYY HH24:MI:SS')"

DaysRetention 7

Description BIT_ORA

Enabled T


InternalDateFormat MM/dd/yyyy HH:mm:ss

JDBCDriver oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver

MaxRetryCount 5

Name ConectorBIT

PoolMax 100

PoolSize 1

RetryInterval 60000

ServerPackage com.lighthammer.Illuminator.connectors.IDBC


Timeout 15

UseCount 256

UserName pruebas


WaitTime 30

When I try to see the status I get this

Server Name ConectorBIT

Connector Type SQL

Status *Running*

No. of Used Connections

No. of Available Connections

Max. No. of Used Connections

Max. Wait Time

As you can see it says running but no connections are available.

When I investigate the xapps-xmii-ear apps logs I get the following warning and infos

info 2008-08-12 16:56:08:590 Created Connection pool [

warning 2008-08-12 16:56:08:590 Unable to fill connection pool for /Applications/XMII

warning 2008-08-12 16:56:07:621 Unable to detemermine maximum number of connections from JDBC driver

So somethings wrong. We cannot make a select to the oracle database.

Please advise.

    did you realy have the ServerPackage com.lighthammer.Illuminator.connectors.IDBC ?

    In MII 12.0.4 the ServerPackage is

    Please create a new Data Server and select IDBC. Do not modify the ServerPackage.

    Configure the Data Server as you know and test it.

    Let me know.

      try to connect from your MII Server with ojdbc14.jar to any Oracle (Version 9 or 10). Only

      to see if its working or not.

      Good Luck.

    My case was solved with a conbination of things

    First the JDBC driver was wrong

    Download classes12.jar from this link version


    Then be carefull when you set up the string because some oracle databases have servicenames instead of SID, and the url was different if you use them instead of the SID

    I found out which was our SID and it worked for us.

    For services names the url changes to jdbc:oracle:thin@//host:port/servicename

    But I coudnt get it working so we finally used the sid.

    To know which oracle jdbc you need , depends which JDK your oracle engines uses, mine was using old JDK 1.1 , so I used classes12.jar.

    IF you have JDK 1.4 and above continue using your oracle14 driver.

    Hope it helps.
