    I am trying to install a fresh Compiere build (2.5.3b) on Solaris (10-current), with jdk 1.5.0_07, and Oracle 10.2.0.
    During the installation, Compiere tries to form a connection to the database using something like: jdbc:oracle:thin:system/mypasswd@dbserv:1521/compiere.
    This always fails, however if I try jdbc:oracle:thin:system/mypasswd@dbserv:1521:compiere (using oracle's JdbcCheckup.java program), then it works fine.
    Can anyone shed any light on this; am I doing something wrong, or has oracle changed, and no longer accepts a "/" before the database name?

    Thanks
