Multi-threaded Clients Currently Cannot Use SSL (Doc ID 2113774.1)

Last updated on JUNE 23, 2017

Applies to:

JDBC - Version 11.2.0.1.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

There are several white papers, tutorials, and documents available from Oracle that demonstrate using SSL Strong Authentication with the Oracle JDBC client, such as

SSL With Oracle JDBC Thin Driver White Paper
Support for Strong Authentication

On the other hand, there is this statement in the Database Advanced Security Administrator's Guide  :

"Multi-threaded clients currently cannot use SSL."

Since Java is inherently multi-threaded, and almost every useful jdbc application connects to the database using multiple threads, these two positions appear to be contradictory.

Can you clarify exactly what the restriction is ?
