thanksOracle Forms is best used against an Oracle database... so why on Earth would you want to use it against SQL Server?
Aside from that, Oracle Forms is old technology... you'd be better using Oracle Application Express (Apex) for producing web based apps.
If you must do things against an SQL Server database, you would need to set up heterogenous services connectivity (HS) and treat the SQL Server database as an external database.

  • How can I connect NetBeans 6.1 with SQL Server 2005?

    Hello guys...
    how can i connect NetBeans 6.1 with SQL Server 2005?
    there is no SQL Server in Server list when we create a new Web Project and choose Server.
    I'm new to NetBeans and this is my first time of posting.
    If has some errors and unwanted disturbing,pls understand me. Thanks.
    (If you have references or some snippets, i'll be glad if u can share.)

    The JDBC-ODBC bridge wasn't recognizing any of the primary keys I had set up in SQL Server. After lots of head banging, here's the solution I came up with:
    1. Download the appropriate driver. SQL Server 2000 requires the SQL Server 2000 JDBC driver (
    SQL Server 2005 download: (
    3. After installing, right-click on "Libraries" in your project, and choose "Add Library...". Next, give it a name (i.e. SQLServer2000), and select "Class Libraries".
    4. On the next screen, find the JAR files (should be in C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Driver for JDBC\lib\), and add them under the "Classpath" tab. It will now be available under "Libraries" for future projects.
    5. You can now create a connection to a specific database under the "Services" tab (next to "Projects" and "Files" in the top left of the screen). Select "Microsoft Sql Server 2000 (Microsoft Driver)" and format the "Database URL" like this:
    1433 is the default port, though your DBA may have changed it.
    I posted a simpler version of this on the FAQ page - they had the following title with no content on the answer page:
    "Cannot Select Tables From MsSql 2000 Because It Says No Primary Key Next To Each Table But The Tables DO Have A Primary Key. What Do I Do?"

  • Generic Connectivity -Oracle(10gR2) to MS SQL server - Creating DSN

    I am trying to connect Oracle 10gR2( on linux x86 to MS Sql Server on Windows XP
    I am referring the Metalink Note 264567.1 and using DataDirect ODBC drivers for the same
    I have a question here
    Do I need to create the System DSN on windows XP or on Oracle (linux server)?
    If it is on linux server, how to I create the System DSN on the Linux?
    Thanks in Advance

    You need to create a DSN on the box where the HSODBC (the oracle db) is running, so in this case the Linux box.
    I'd assume there's documentation that comes with the 3rd party odbc driver on how to create a DSN with it. It probably depends on which version of driver manager you're using (pardon my ignorance, I do strictly Windows) so you'd probably want to check the docs for the driver manager. For example, if using unixODBC, the docs are on [their web site|].
    Hope it helps,

  • How to connect oracle forms 10g with oracle 10g express database?

    Hi all,
    I have downloaded and installed oracle forms 10g and oracle database 10g express, when I open net configuration assistant to test local net service, I tested the default service (EXTPROC_CONNECTION_DATA) BUT THE RESULT IS "ora-28547 connection to server failed probable oracle net admin error"
    How can I solve this issue?
    My tnsname.ora is located in c:\DevSuiteHome\network\admin\tnsnames.ora, and its contents is:
    # tnsnames.ora Network Configuration File: c:\DevSuiteHome\network\admin\tnsnames.ora
    # Generated by Oracle configuration tools.
    (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = nour-pc)(PORT = 1521))
    Edited by: user10228498 on Jan 21, 2011 11:37 PM

    I copied the contents of C:\oraclexe\app\oracle\product\10.2.0\server\NETWORK\ADMIN\tnsnames.ora and appended it to C:\DevSuiteHome\NETWORK\ADMIN\tnsnames.ora
    and tried net configuration management to test local net service, the test was ok, thus the first problem resolved.
    but the login problem in forms developer still exist and it claims that: ora-12154 tns could not resolve the connect identifier specified.
    any ideas?

    I saw this error when implementing this white paper previously.  I believe we ended up using the 32 bit version of SQL Server, and we might have ended up using R1 to get it to function.
    The problem is actually with the librfc32.dll...I don't believe it's compatible with SSIS 64-bit.

  • Connecting Oracle 8.17 to SQL Server 7.0

    Hi Everybody,
    I am trying to connect to SQL Server 7.0 from Oracle 8.17 using
    generic connectivity.
    I have configured all the files(listener.ora and tsnames.ora)
    and created a database link in Oracle.But when I try to execute

    what could have gone wrong ? Please help me.

    Hi Fraser,
    Thank you for responding.
    I think I fixed that problem,actually there was a spelling
    mistake in one of the parameter files.
    But now I get another error message, says:

    talk to the client.
    I am definitely not doing something right.

  • How Connect Oracle Forms 6 With Database 11g R2

    Hello every one:
    I'm Have application made by Forms 6 and Oracle 10g, now i'm make upgrade to my DB to 11G
    but have problem when make connection between Forms 6 and 11g
    ORA-02248: invalid option for ALTER SESSION
    pls help me !!

    Oracle Forms 6i is not certified with Oracle RDBMS 11g and the last I read - there was no plans to certify Forms 6i with RDBMS 11g. If you search the Forums you can find some workarounds to make Forms 6i work with RDBMS 11g, but these are not Oracle Supported workarounds.
    Your only real options are to leave things as they are or upgrade both your Forms application and the database. If you opt to upgrade your Forms application, you need to upgrade your Forms application to at least Forms 10g R2 ( to be supported.

  • Connection Pooling in Tomcat with SQL Server

    Hey Guys,
    I have been banging my head against this all day :( so i now turn to you for some help :) I have a web app that uses a database now i want to start using this connection pooling that is supposed to be greatly more efficient than creating a new statement each time i need something from the database.
    I have read many articles about this already today and feel that a lot of the contradict each other and one thing that i saw was that there seems to be different way of doing this.
    One solution i have tried to implement but have so far failed is as follows:
    In Web app:
    Update Web.xml to include:
                Resource reference to a factory for java.sql.Connection
                instances that may be used for talking to a particular
                database that is configured in the server.xml file.
        </resource-ref>Update Context.xml to include:
    <Context path="/TEST_CON_POOLING">
    <Resource name="jdbc/BBL"
    maxIdle="4" />
    </Context>And then my jsp to test this:
    <%@taglib uri="" prefix="c"%>
    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"
            <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
            <title>JSP Page</title>
            <%@ page import="java.sql.ResultSet, java.sql.*,java.sql.SQLException,javax.naming.Context,javax.naming.InitialContext,
            javax.naming.NamingException,javax.sql.DataSource" %>
            Context initCtx = new InitialContext();
            Context envCtx = (Context) initCtx.lookup("java:comp/env");
            DataSource ds = (DataSource)
            Connection conn = ds.getConnection();
            //... use this connection to access the database ...
            Statement stmt = conn.createStatement();
            ResultSet rs = stmt.executeQuery("select id from users");
    </html>When i actually deply this i get the following nasty tomcat error:
    root cause
    Cannot create JDBC driver of class '' for connect URL 'jdbc:microsoft:sqlserver://;DatabaseName=BBL'
    root cause
    java.sql.SQLException: No suitable driver
         javax.servlet.http.HttpServlet.service( far as i know all the necessary sql server jar files are in my classpath, and any way i have them all sitting in the CATALINA_HOME/common/lib directory.
    Am i going about this correctly? Some tutorials i have read say that i should be updateing the server.xml file but whenever i go near that tomcat will not even start.
    Help greatly appreciated.
    If there is anything i have not posted let me know and i will get it up.

    Updating the server.xml file used to be necessary. It is no longer required, and actually not recommended any more.
    The best approach I feel is as you have done here, putting the definition into a context.xml file specifically for this application.
    In fact it all looks pretty good to me.
    JDBC driver jar in [TOMCAT]/common/lib - check
    Configuration in context.xml rather than server.xml - check
    Using JNDI - check.
    Have you got the connection url right?
    Is it jdbc:microsoft:sqlserver or just jdbc:sqlserver ? I have seen both on various sites around the internet.
    What version of SQL Server are you using? Check its documentation on the JDBC driver as to what class to use, and what the connection string should be.
    Try it in a plain java class - can you get a connection just using plain JDBC code?
    What values do you use for that?
    Hope this helps,
