I am teaching myself Java with JDBC and connecting to ORACLE.
I've go ORACLE XE on XP. When I try to connect to ORACLE, I get an error message stating that a "... -1 is returned on read ...". I saw this reported on other forums but the answers did not lead me to any solution.
The SID that I use is XE (default on installation)
My url is something like "jdbc : oracle:thin:user/passw@localhost:8081:XE"
Have a great day.
I live in Sunny South Africe in Pretoria where it is now very cold - one day before our Spring Day (01/09).
