How to Use the Latest Thin JDBC Driver Across All Applications within OC4J 10.1.3.x Container (Doc ID 420303.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 13, 2024

Applies to:

Oracle Containers for J2EE - Version to [Release AS10gR3]
JDBC - Version to [Release 10.1 to 11.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


This document describes how to upgrade the JDBC thin driver that all applications use within the container through a shared library for OC4J 10.1.3.x.

Unless there is a pressing need to switch from the default JDBC driver you should be very careful about replacing the driver for all applications. In most cases just switching the JDBC driver for a single application may be all you need. See <Note 787689.1>, "Installing/Configuring OAS 10.1.3.x to use Different Oracle JDBC Driver Versions".

  • Note this document is for OC4J use only, and is not applicable to Oracle applications installed and configured with the full Oracle Application Server installations.

  • Once Oracle Database 11g became certified with Oracle Application Server 10g, there are specific instructions (as tested by QA) to use the driver with a patch and specific settings:

    <Note 887365.1> Oracle Database 11g Release 2 (11.2) Certification for Oracle Application Server 10g (10.1.2, 10.1.3, 10.1.4)
    <Note 740417.1> Oracle Database 11g Release 1 (11.1) Certification for Oracle Application Server 10g (10.1.2, 10.1.3, 10.1.4)
