    Sid,service,service_name

    In TNSNAMES.ORA file entry for CONNECT_DATA,i've seen three types of entries,one with SID,other with SERVICE_NAME & third one is SERVICE.

    For example,for your reference i've given SERVICE entry which i read


    TEST.world =
    (DESCRIPTION =
    (ADDRESS_LIST =
    (ADDRESS =
    (COMMUNITY = spx.world)
    (PROTOCOL = SPX)
    (SERVICE = Server_lsnr)
    )
    (CONNECT_DATA = (SID = TEST)
    )
    )

    Clear my following doubts,

    1) what is the diference between SID,SERVICE_NAME & SERVICE.
    2) I've seen 3 types of protocols in TNSNAMES.ORA setting,
    TCP - for network connection
    IPC - for External procedure

    what is the need & use of SPX protocol and explain me what is COMMUNITY in SPX setting ?
