[R] RJDBC and OracleDriver: unable to connect

Hi there,
I'm trying to connect in an Oracle database. I am able to do it with Java, but when trying this code in R:

drv = JDBC("oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver",

            "C:\\Documents and

con=dbConnect(drv,url="jdbc:oracle:thin:@apu.ebi.ac.uk:1521:AEDWT",uid="rodri", pwd="rodri")

The JDBC() call seems to work fine but dbConnect() returns:

Error in .verify.JDBC.result(jc, "Unable to connect JDBC to ", url) :   Unable to connect JDBC to jdbc:oracle:thin:@apu.ebi.ac.uk:1521:AEDWT (invalid arguments in call)

I guess it should be a problem with the driver, because the other parameters are simple and work ok in Java-equivalent code

I've tried to find info in the forums, and i've found the same question but with no response
My environment is

-R 2.7.0

-Java 1.6.0_03
-ojdbc14.jar with OracleDriver (working fine in java code)
-Windows XP

Thanks in advance!
