When using Class.forName("jdbc.oracle.driver.OracleDriver")

Can any one advice how to use driver of type2,type3 and type4.Cause JdbcOdbcDriver is working correctly with oracle's personal edition .From where I'll get the oracle driver n how to use it?
Thansk in advence.

Hi Shailendra,
You need to donwload Oracle JDBC classes from Oracle site and put them in your CLASSPATH.
You need classes111 or classes12.zip depending on which version of Java and Oracle you are running. You can get the correct info in the Oracle tech net site.
Hope that helps.
