Getting envCharSetID Exception in Developer

Hi all - I’m hoping one of you has seen and resolved this issue. I’m getting an “envCharSetId” exception during runtime on a Java service. I’m on an HP-UX 11 client using the OCI driver to connect to Oracle9i. I think the problem is occurring because I have an “@” in my dbUrl variable which is used in the lines below:

String dbUrl = “jdbc:oracle:oci:@ORCL_TNS_ENTRY”;

It think may be due to the mapping of the “@” key but I’m not sure. I’m guessing this because the exception seems to have something to do with the environment’s character set. What’s weird is that if I run the same Java service outside IDeveloper (i.e., slap a main() and class on it) in Unix, it runs fine. So I’m guessing there is some environment / character set mapping that Developer inherits when is run and I’m pretty sure it has to do with the “@” character??? Any insight on this issue would be greatly appreciated.
