Java database connection failing from linux


I am trying to connect to an Oracle database using the following code :
sqlplus username/password@database_name

It was showing an error 'username/password invalid'

But i tried: sqlplus username/password ,it was connecting now.

Can anyone suggest what may be the issue and why?Can i track from where did it fetch the database information?

Your help is appreciated

With Regards

Hi Dileep

If you get connected without providing the Oracle SID, it's been gotten from the environment, try this:

$ echo $ORACLE_SID

It should show what SID you're connecting to.
