Adapter or Driver for DB Connection..?

Hi i would like to know in webmethods , if we need an adapter to connect to an oracle database or a driver is sufficient…?

According to me i am assuming that the JDBC driver is a part of the JDBC adapter that is used to connect to the datatbase. Am i corrcet in making this accumption…?

Kindly clarify


Hi Sam,

the jdbc driver itself is not part of the jdbc adapter.
It is part of your db installation.

You will need to copy the driver jar from your db installation into the following
directory after you have installed JDBC Adapter:

Reload the package WmJDBCAdapter after you copied the file to activate it.
For Oracle you should use the ojdbc14.jar available from Oracle Technology Network (OTN).
