Goal

Where is ojdbc7.jar and its related libraries found for compatibility with Oracle Database 12.2 and Java 7 ?

There is the need to support an application upgrade for which the application is using Java7 against and Oracle 12c 12.2.0.1 database. It is noticed that the JDBC drivers that are shipped with Oracle 12.2.0.1 are ojdbc8.jar which is version 8. However, version 7 compatibility is needed. Also, what is the link in Oracle where the ojdbc7 drivers can be downloaded from?

Environment:

Client is Oracle 12.2.0.1
Java is 1.7
