Applies to:

Oracle SQL Developer - Version 22.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When using SQL developer to login remotely with user/password, it shows an error:

ORA-00604 error occured at recursive SQL level 1
ORA-01804 Failure To Initialize Timezone Information

There is no issue to login locally using SQLplus and connect with the same user/password.

Added this into \sqldeveloper\bin\sqldeveloper.conf, but it does not work
