soapUI Error: “ Failed to init connection for drvr [oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver]

I was encountering the following error in soapUI when one of the test steps was to check the database. Failed to init connection for drvr [], connectionString [jdbc:sqlserver://server:port;databaseName=DB name;user=username;password=#####] 

The issue was because my soapUI installation didn’t have the appropriate ODBC jar file. 

1. Get it from Oracle

2. Place it in your $SOAPUI/bin/ext folder

3. Restart soapUI

4. That’s it!
