RDBPROD: RdbNative multiProcess option fails with JDBC for Rdb 7.3

(Doc ID 1142229.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 12, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Rdb Server on OpenVMS - Version 7.3 to 7.3 [Release 7.3]
Oracle JDBC for Rdb - Version 7.3 to 7.3 [Release 7.3]
HP OpenVMS Itanium
HP OpenVMS Alpha


The Oracle JDBC for Rdb User Guide documents the option "multiProcess" for the Rdb Native Driver.

Using this option fails after upgrading to JDBC for Rdb 7.3. If the connection option multiProcess=true is specified, then the connection fails with a stack similar to this:

JNI_Init *** INFO: server version needs to be V7.3 or later
Exception in thread "RDB$CLIENT_ID_00000001" java.sql.SQLException:
JNI_Init *** INFO: server version needs to be V7.3 or later

Upgrade to JDBC for Rdb 7.3.
