I haven't looked at your map file yet, but do have the following comments:
1) You do not need to compile the .java files. The compiled files are in
2) By default, the samples use the JDBC-ODBC Bridge driver. (This is the
property Driver=sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver in db.props.) You will
probably want to change this property to the JDBC driver shipped with
Oracle. You will need to read the documentation for that driver to see
how to enter the user name and password. For example, the driver might
prompt you for them. (You can put them in the db.props file, but this is
3) You are getting an error because the JDBC-ODBC Bridge requires you to
set up an ODBC data source. This error will go away when you set the
driver to the Oracle driver. However, you will need to specify the URL
for your database. See the Oracle JDBC driver documentation for the
format of this URL.
4) You do not need to use MapManager. This is a tool for generating
maps. Since you already have a map, you should use the Transfer tool
(run by transfer.bat in the sample directory) to transfer data.
