Last updated on MARCH 08, 2021

Applies to:

JDBC - Version 11.2.0.4.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

An application using JDBC 11.2.0.3 or higher and performing an insert on a table with an index in database 12.1.0.2 fails with the exception:

java.sql.SQLException: ORA-00036: maximum number of recursive SQL levels () exceeded

The same insert does not reproduce the error with SQL*Plus.
The insert is successful if the index is not created.
The issue occurs only after the Oct 2020 PSU patch is applied to the database.

Changes

 Patch:31511219 (Oct 2020 PSU) was applied to the database.
