    We are trying to create a data definition using Oracle XML Gateway Message designer, but are getting an error in Step2 i.e. while providing database information

    We are performing the following steps:

    1) Open Oracle XML Message Designer.

    2) Go to File -> New -> Data Definition

    3) Enter the Data Definition Name (Free Form Text) and Select Data Definition Type as 'Database' and Click Next

    4) Enter Database information. Here the tool asks for User, Password, Connect String, Host and Port. On entering these details the tool throws an error as pasted in the Error.docx

    Please let us know what information needs to be specified in the Connect String and Host. Is there anything we are missing in providing these values

    Also is there any other setup (like jdbc) that needs to be done for this

    Hi, Guest,

    I'm sorry to hear that you've encountered an issue with this.

    We can provide general conceptual guidance here, but I'm afraid that this blog isn't the best place to get technical support for specific issues like the one that you're working through.

    Your best bet would be to log a formal Service Request via My Oracle Support (formerly Metalink) to get one of our specialists engaged.

    Please feel free to forward your Service Request number to me if it gets stuck in the support process for some reason.

    Any guidance for XML Message Gateway Designer connecting to R12.2.4 12c database? It appears that the JDBC components delivered with this tool are old and do not allow connection in our new environment. I've confirmed that I can connect in a 12.1.3 11g environment. I've already opened SR 3-13520026051 but not making any progress.

    Other Oracle tools can connect just fine. e.g., Oracle Workflow Builder, report, and forms.

    Current Version of XML Gateway Message Designer is
