Hi,
I want to access oracle 8 database with JDBC of Java,but I always fail.I think I can't install oracle 8 correctly,Becuse I use the item"net8 easy configer" to test the instalnation,the result is error.Now,I want to know:
(1)How can I install oracle 8(version 8.0.4)for my java?
(2)where I can download free driver for the oracle?
(3) which sub-protocol , OCI or thin,should I use for the JDBC?
(4)which part of oracle ,oracle8,oracle client and oracle enterprise should I install?
I will appreciate you if you reply me as soon as possible.

hi jasen,
did u know that oracle8 needs to be installed on winNT,it doesnt work on win 95 or 98.Secondly u have to use Net protocol/all java driver for connecting to database .it can be downloaded from java.sun.com site.u may load any thing oracle client or server and any edition,professional or enterprise.
