    Talking Setting up class path for Eclipse


    I am a newbie at Java programing and am not able to use JDBC to connect to an Oracle database.

    I've read some threads for people who had this same issue (import oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver; --ClassNotFound) and copied the file $ORACLE_HOME/jdbc/lib/ to /usr/local/jdk1.5/jre/lib, but no success. So I wonder how should I get this to work. Programming on Java with Oracle database access is my major goal, so I'd appreciate every help.

    I use Eclipse IDE running on Kubuntu 7.10 - Oracle 10G R2.

    I found this out....

    Under the projects Dir there is a hidden XML file called .classpath, so I added the ones in bold to the file:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <classpathentry kind="src" path="src"/>
    <classpathentry kind="con" path="org.eclipse.jdt.launching.JRE_CONTAINER"/>
    <classpathentry kind="lib" path="/opt/oracle/product/10gR2/jdbc/lib/classes12.jar"/>
    <classpathentry kind="lib" path="/opt/oracle/product/10gR2/jdbc/lib/classes12_g.jar"/>
    <classpathentry kind="lib" path="/opt/oracle/product/10gR2/jdbc/lib/ojdbc14.jar"/>
    <classpathentry kind="lib" path="/opt/oracle/product/10gR2/jdbc/lib/ojdbc14_g.jar"/>
    <classpathentry kind="lib" path="/opt/oracle/product/10gR2/jdbc/lib/classes12dms.jar"/>
    <classpathentry kind="lib" path="/opt/oracle/product/10gR2/jdbc/lib/classes12dms_g.jar"/>
    <classpathentry kind="lib" path="/opt/oracle/product/10gR2/jdbc/lib/classes111.jar"/>
    <classpathentry kind="lib" path="/opt/oracle/product/10gR2/jdbc/lib/classes111_g.jar"/>
    <classpathentry kind="lib" path="/opt/oracle/product/10gR2/jdbc/lib/nls_charset11.jar"/>
    <classpathentry kind="lib" path="/opt/oracle/product/10gR2/jdbc/lib/nls_charset12.jar"/>
    <classpathentry kind="lib" path="/opt/oracle/product/10gR2/jdbc/lib/ocrs12.jar"/>

    <classpathentry kind="output" path="bin"/>
    And now it works. I have no read this in any other forum nor book, tutorial. I simply tried.

    Thank you.
