Question: is it possible to use the Oracle Wallet without enabling auto login in Wallet manager?

Problem I'm facing: When auto login is disabled, the sqlplus call:

sqlplus /@orcl

fails with:

TNS:wallet open failed

When enabling autologin, it connects automatically.

The expected behaviour is that, when autologin is disabled, you are asked the wallet password, and then connect.

What happens if you specify a username and no password (i.e. sqlplus someuser@orcl)? –  Mat Aug 16 '13 at 7:46
