I'm trying to connect the plugin to an external oracle database where I have a view to get the data for the custom field.

I have copied the oracle jdbc driver to the lib directory. But I get the following error in the logs:

java.sql.SQLSyntaxErrorException: ORA-00942: table or view does not exist

When I do the same query with the same user and password in SQL Developer it works.
Has anybody experience connecting the plugin to Oracle and can tell me more about the configuration, maybe that fixes my problem?

I found the error, it happens when the database connection string is created.

In my case I have to pass user and passwort directly so i had to comment out the property check for "database.user" and "database.password" in the class DatanbaseValuesCFParametersLoader to make it work for me.

Just in case somebody encounters the same problem.

Thanks for posting this! I don't have an Oracle database, so I never tested the plugin with it.
