Information in this document applies to any platform.


The <Note:974949.1> "Oracle E-Business Suite Software Development Kit for Java (includes AppsDataSource, Java Authentication and Authorization Service, session management)" explains the steps to create a Datasource for external applications to connect to the E-Business Suite database.

An error often reported here is the ORA-01017: invalid username/password; logon denied which normally indicates that a database user passed incorrect credentials. However when it comes to creating Datasource the ORA-01017 is raised as soon as there is an issue with the connection and the actual ORA message is not reporting the actual error. 

This document will provide a number of things to verify which may assist in troubleshooting the ORA-01017 when raised in context of Datasource.
