RSA Product/Service Type: Access Request Manager
RSA Version/Condition: 6.8.1
Platform: WebSphere 8.5.5
Database version: Oracle 12c
|Issue||The user is setting up a new environment with Websphere 8.5.5 and Oracle 12c.|
From the new Oracle database it needs to use a JDBC URL in LDAP format to connect database from Websphere.
|Tasks||This article addresses how to apply for the connection string to the URL under "Common and Required Data Source Properties."|
|Resolution||Below are examples of the connection strings to connect to the Oracle Database.|
An example of a database specifier using the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) syntax is as follows:
When using SSL, change the syntax to be as shown below.
|Notes||The JDBC Thin driver can use LDAP over SSL to communicate with the Oracle Internet Directory if you substitute ldaps: for ldap: in the database specifier.|
The LDAP server must be configured to use SSL. If it is not, then the connection attempt will hang.
