Raja, Oracle's network layer has a built in parser which checks the syntax of
the tnsnames.ora file. Such parsers are usually based on lex and yacc (or flex
and bison in case of GPL-ed software) and one thing that they have to account for
are parenthesizes. My suspicion is that parenthesizes in the path name will somehow
confuse the parser which will read incorrect elements of the TNS descriptor and
prevent the network layer from finding the destination. May be you should put your
app in a directory with more standard name?
