Issue creating Connection Pool for Oracle on Glassfish3

As part of ADF Essentials setup on Glassfish, you need to create JDBC Pool. This is documented on http://docs.oracle.com/middleware/1212/adf/ADFAG/ap_glassfish.htm#ADFAG20931.

First make sure that you copy ojdbc6.jar to your Glassfish servers’s domain-homelib folder.

Command create-jdbc-connection-pool failed.

This kept failing for me, as it seems to parse URL for properties as URL has : character. Modifying the command as shown below resolved the issue. Notice URL is not specified as URL=”jdbc:oracle:thin:@localhost:1521:XE”.
