JDBC database connections using a driver earlier than 220.127.116.11 fail with a "Socket read timed out" error, such as the one listed in the following exception stack:
org.springframework.jdbc.CannotGetJdbcConnectionException: Could not get JDBC Connection; nested exception is java.sql.SQLException: Exception occurred while getting connection: oracle.ucp.UniversalConnectionPoolException: Cannot get Connection from Datasource: java.sql.SQLRecoverableException: IO Error: Socket read timed out
With a limited number of JDBC connections (such as a single, small JDBC or UCP connection pool), the application works successfully.
With a high number of JDBC connections, the "IO Error: Socket read timed out" error occurs.
