From what I read, the Oracle JDBC drivers are for Java 1.2. Will they work with the 1.3 JDK?

They claim that it should work for java 1.3 but they don't guarantee it because java.sql.Connection and java.sql.ResultSet has more methods in Java 1.3 compared to Java 1.2.
Good Luck!

I have used the Oracle JDBC thin driver version 8.1.7 (or something along those lines), and once we upgrade from 8.1.6 we haven't had any problems.

We have been using the oracle jdbc thin driver for our project with jdk1.3 and it is not giving us any problems.

The only problem it may give is of the warnings while compiling.
Particularly with the date classes.The warnings are all about the deprecated methods.

I agree. Here's the link:
