How To Trace the JDBC driver (Doc ID 338433.1)

Last updated on MARCH 21, 2019

Applies to:

JDBC - Version 10.1.0 to
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The purpose of this document is to illustrate the JDBC 10g/11g/12c tracing feature.  This is also referred as JDBC logging.

JDBC logging is now documented in the JDBC Developer's guide:

Oracle Database JDBC Developer's Guide,
11g Release 2 (11.2)
Part Number E16548-02
31 Diagnosability in JDBC

Oracle® Database JDBC Developer's Guide
12c Release 1 (12.1)
32 Diagnosability in JDBC


Prior to JDBC 10g, the JDBC 9i driver used a different method for logging.  Starting with 10gR1 and as of current versions, the JDBC driver relies on the standard java.util.logging framework provided with JDK 1.4 and higher.
