WSAD 5.1.2 installation messed up my existing Eclipse 3.0 installation. I cannot bring up the Eclipse anymore. Is this due to the WSAD 5.1.2 using Eclipe 2.1 ? My plan is to install Eclipse on the laptop when I get one.
Changed the Oracle db related services to run manually instead of automatic. TNS listener and the DBName processes must be started to use the database. Need to download the JDBC driver classes12.zip. I think it is free. Once the database is setup, I can start playing with Hibernate framework.
