in thread Error running CGI on tomcat

Yes, I can connect using sqlplus as well as toad. I can also ping the DB machine and tnsping is successful. This makes me believe that everything on the oracle client is ok. I am also providing the "connect" code here that I am using:
# DBI Initializations my $driver = 'Oracle'; my $hostname = 'host=oradev;sid=oradev;port=1521'; my $user = 'user'; my $password = 'password'; my $dsn = "DBI:$driver:$hostname"; my $dbh = DBI->connect($dsn,$user,$password) or croak "Error $DBI::err +str connecting to $dsn\n";
the last line is where it fails and gives me the error message!

    my $dsn = "DBI:$driver:oradev"; my $dbh = DBI->connect($dsn,$user,$password);
    make any difference?

    The code you currently have bypasses the tns alias, the code above uses the alias.


      Hi, I tried this format of the connection string, but it now gives this error:

      Error ORA-12560: TNS:protocol adapter error (DBD ERROR: OCIServerAttach) connecting to DBI:Oracle:ORADEV

      Any ideas? I am banging my head, wondering what environment variables etc might be missing!!!
        There should be an error stack in your sqlnet.log file, the error above is a generic error, and more detailed infomation should be recorded in the log file.
