The goal of this article is to provide the instructions for using the JDBC client as an alternative to ODBC.  The result is exactly the same as ODBC, but does not require use of the Oracle Instant Client. Problems resulting from ODBC conflicts due to cross-over of DLLs amongst multiple applications using different versions of Oracle DLLs associated with the Oracle ODBC driver are therefore bypassed.  There are only two INI changes to switch to JDBC, but these two things are important.
