Symptoms

An application using 11.2.0.3 JDBC driver and IBM JDK 1.6 fails with following exception,

java.lang.NullPointerException
at oracle.jdbc.driver.T4CTTIdcb.fillupAccessors(T4CTTIdcb.java:1032)
at oracle.jdbc.driver.T4CTTIdcb.receiveCommon(T4CTTIdcb.java:208)

Replacing the JDBC driver with 11.2.0.2 ojdbc6.jar workarounds the issue.
