Eclipse unable to create a DBConnection

The custom JDBC URL is:


In SQL Developer you can specify a custom URL;

In Eclipse, no way, you must enter the individual fields and no matter what, it keeps appending a ":" after 389

The only workaround is to create a dummy connection, then edit the SID in the "Database Connections" "properties".... a terrible hack for a terrible product (Eclipse)

You should set this:

PORT NUMBER=//oid.acme
