    Can you provide more detail? The name of the driver class should be of your choosing. As for the URL, define what the URL is for or what it must do/refer to. You might check out the Java URL class for ideas.

    Ah, I misunderstood what you meant by "driver class."

    Your last comment is "it's working fine." Does that mean you no longer need help? If you do need help, please clarify what you're asking.

    use driver
    oracle.jdbc.OracleDriver

    and url
    jdbc: oracle: driver_type:@host_name: port_number:SID", "username", "password"
    driver_type : thin or oci
    SID : XE or ORCL

    for example:
    jdbc: oracle:thin:@myhost:1521: orcl", "scott", "tiger"
    The Driver Class Name and url are vander specific, and the Class is reside in the jar file. In your case you are using ojdbc14.jar so the class oracle.jdbc.OracleDriver is in that jar file.Suppose if you are using MySQL then the Class detail is reside in mysql-connector.jar file and the Class Name change as well.
