JDBC uses the following format for connection URLs...


From your screenshot, it looks like you’ve missed the ‘//’ characters between the driver and hostname.

Hope this helps.


For everyone who is coming over this question:

In oracle jdbc urls you have to differentiate between service or SID.

With SID the syntax should be as follows:


with service the snytax should be as follows:

'jdbc:oracle:thin:@//[IP]:[Port]/[Service Name]'
