hi, are you able to connect to the database with the same credentials from SQL Developer or any other tool?
ojdbc14.jar should be fine. Looks no issues with wM but database, check if your database is available.


Invalid Oracle URL specified: OracleDataSource.makeURL"

Make sure you are providing correct DB details, check if there are any space in between

As Shahid mentioned, please check the DB URL. If you are not sure, on the above right hand, there is Help written, click on that and all the connection details are written, copy that and use.

Hi All,

Thanks for the response, I checked as per ur suggestion but no luck… still have same issue please help !.


Can you explain what you checked?

  1. is the database and TNS listener running?
  2. are you able to connect to the database from external client like sql developer?
  3. are you able to ping the oracle server from the webMethods box?
    4 are you able to connect to other oracle databases from webMethods?
