How to connect to oracle using Service Name



I know that it´s possible to connect to oracle using SID information. But my database is only configured to use the Service Name. Is it possible to connect with only that ? Maybe passing the whole jdbc URL or something like this.

oracle service-name sid

I'm afraid it isn't possible to connect to the Oracle database via the Oracle Call Interface (OCI) using PRTG. Sorry.
