I have migrated from Oracle sql developer tool 1.5x to 3.1x and imported my connection settings with database 10g. When I try to open a connectionstring in the developer tool I get this message:

What driver should I install and where can I find it?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

What do you mean by 'imported my connection settings with database 10g'? Whould be helpfull to post the connection information ... It seems to have something to do with that. – Robert Merkwürdigeliebe Mar 13 '12 at 11:51
When I installed oracle sql developer 3.1x on my OS where the 1.5x was already installed I could overtake the existing settings/connectionstrings from the former oracle developer 1.5x. – Pascal Mar 13 '12 at 12:34
OK but now the important part : give us the connection settings. Right click on the connection|properties and give us the details. – Robert Merkwürdigeliebe Mar 14 '12 at 7:55
Does creating a new connection from scratch give the same error as the imported ones? – Leigh Riffel Mar 23 '12 at 21:10
