Oracle SID error


If you get Oracle TNS listener like error below its probably due to incorrect configuration of the connect string in your application:-


INFO : org.springframework.beans.factory.support.DefaultListableBeanFactory - Destroying singletons in org.springframework.beans.factory.support.DefaultListableBeanFactory@3ddfd90f: defining beans [dataSource,org.springframework.jdbc.datasource.init.DataSourceInitializer#0]; root of factory hierarchy

Solution
Make sure that you look into tnsnames.ora file and listener.ora file:-
My tnsnames.ora looks like
XE =
(DESCRIPTION =
(ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = localhost)(PORT = 1521))
(CONNECT_DATA =
(SERVER = DEDICATED)
(SERVICE_NAME = xe)
)
)

listener.ora looks this
LISTENER =
(DESCRIPTION_LIST =
(DESCRIPTION =
(ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = IPC)(KEY = EXTPROC1521))
(ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = localhost)(PORT = 1521))
)
)
Compare these settings to your jdbc url configuration in your web application and it will most likely give you a clue if the string is wrong:-
jdbc:oracle:thin:@aHost:1521:theSID
