Subject RE: Oracle configuration problem
Date Fri, 23 May 2008 17:42:54 GMT
I tried changing my driver to classes12 and that is letting it connect. But now I get

   at java.lang.Integer.parseInt(
   at java.lang.Integer.parseInt(

It seems this is an error in the driver causing this. I've found that I should be able to
TOMCAT_OPTS=-Doracledatabasemetadata.get_lob_precision=false but that isn't working. Is there
a way to disable the version check?

Yes, I've got Roller running on RHEL5 (actually OEL5) and to 10.2 of the
database but using OC4J 10.1.3 instead of Tomcat.

Have you looked on Metalink, e.g. notes 158654.1 "ORA-12705 - Common Reasons
and How to Resolve Them" and 21558.1 "OERR: ORA 12705 "invalid or unknown
NLS parameter value specified""? You don't say what locale you're in etc but
have you tried NLS_LANG = AMERICAN_AMERICA.US7ASCII (the default)? When you
say it worked fine on your PC how different is that environment - Windows or
Linux, did you have an Oracle client installed on it, is it in the same
subnet as the app server, etc?

Finally have you tried writing a small, standalone java test program to
prove that you can connect to the database using the same driver/connection
URL. This would then indicate whether the problem is in Roller/Tomcat
