Does the Oracle driver that comes with Oracle 8.1.6 fully support JDBC 2. Do i have to do anything other than add classes12.zip to my class path to be able to use the jdbc2 driver?
Thanks in advance

From the oracle web site:
http://technet.oracle.com/tech/java/sqlj_jdbc/htdocs/jdbc_faq.htm#_29_
In Oracle 8.1.6, we provide JDBC drivers for Java1.1.x and for Java2 (aka 1.2). Our 1.2 Oracle drivers are fully JDK 1.2 compliant. Both our 1.1.x and our 1.2 JDBC drivers are JDBC 2.0 compliant except for Calender datatype support. Features supported include:
Core JDBC:

  • Beta support for scrollable cursors
  • Support for structured types and lob types.
  • Batching support compliant with the JDBC 2.0 API

  • JDBC 2.0 Extensions:

    • Connection Pooling
    • JDBC-XA support (but not "recover()").

Thank you for the prompt response, one more thing though, the classes12.zip file, does it contain more than one driver, if so, how can i find out the class names of the drivers. I tried unzipping the file, but it just created a couple of empty directories. Based on a couple of posts i've read, the classes12.zip file contains a driver with class name oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver - is that the name for the JDBC2 compliant, thin Oracle driver?
Again, thank you for your help.
