    Is your Java installed under "Program Files"?  I have seen this cause a number of issues including the issue you are seeing.


    If it is installed under program files, can you reinstall it to a path with no spaces in the name. 




  • Make sure your driver is in the lib folder of your Anaplan Connect installation.

    If that doesn't work then try adding "-loadclass oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver" early in your command line. This will cause it to register itself with the JDBC driver manager.


  • tried both, still same issue. any configuration needed here?

  • With the -loadclass option, did you also get a message saying:

    Warning: -loadclass failed (Class not found: oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver)

    Also, check the connection string is correct - it should be in the form jdbc:oracle:thin:@//host_name:port_number/service_name.

    Which version of Anaplan Connect are you using? In 1.4 JDBC is configured using a file whereas older versions use options on the command line.

  • I did not see any warning message in logs with loadclass. I had put -loadclass option while calling AnaplanConnect.bat. is it how it needs to be done? I don't think it is doing anything.


    Yes, I am using connection string as you mentioned. 1.4.1 is the version of Anaplan connect.

  • Thanks a lot @scott.smith . re-installing Java on a different directory path helped resolving this issue.

  • I'd always recommend exercising caution when installing a JDK, it will often reap dividends to install it in a directory containing no spaces, often minimising the directory path length (ie. c:\jdk) as spaces can cause issues when defining search paths, environment variables etc.
