Last updated on MARCH 18, 2024

Applies to:

JDBC - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
This problem can occur on any platform.


You have a JDBC application which runs for several hours. It then returns the following error:

ORA-1000 Maximum open cursors exceeded

The database parameter "open_cursors" in the "init.ora" is currently set to a number in excess of the maximum number of cursors you expect your application to have open at any one time. Increasing the value for the parameter  extends the period of time before failure, but does not resolve the issue.
