sql – The network adapter could not establish the connection – Oracle 11g

I wrote a servlet program and I want it to connect to my Oracle database but its giving me an error. I am using Eclipse Helios, Tomcat 6.0.37, Oracle 11g (11.2.0.1.0), ojdbc6.jar(added in run configuration of the Server project). I am able to connect to the database through the SQL Plus interface and even can start a connection from Eclipse’s database development perspective. But when i am trying to connect through my servlet I am getting the error. For my servlet i am using the port number 9090 and for the database the default 1521.

This is my code for establishing the connection:

Class.forName("oracle.jdbc.OracleDriver");
Connection con = (Connection) DriverManager.getConnection( "jdbc:oracle:thin:@localhost:1521:orcl","username","password");

I tried executing the lsnrctl stat command and this was the result:

These are the contents of my tnsnames.ora file:

ORACLR_CONNECTION_DATA =

    (CONNECT_DATA =

    )
  )

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
