Last updated on MARCH 14, 2017

Applies to:

JDBC - Version 10.1.0.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms


 After Oracle Client update to 12.1.0.2, SAP java related scripts like configtool.sh fail with the following error:



When starting configtool.sh script, it was originally calling the JDBC driver location as "/oracle/client/12x/instantclient/ojdbc14.jar". After upgrading the database to 12c, the driver was changed to ojdbc6.jar 12.1.0.2 to overcome the issue on <Document: 2111118.1> ORA-28040 Using JDBC Connection to 12c Database. However, the error message "Unsupported Oracle JDBC driver version" is received.


STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Upgrade JDBC from ojdbc14.jar 11.2 to ojdbc6.jar 12.1.0.2
2. Try to invoke configtool.sh.
