"Oracle provides two JDBC drivers: the "OCI driver" and the "thin driver." Both drivers provide several important benefits: superior performance, support for Oracle-specific datatypes, access to PL/SQL stored procedures, and support for all Oracle character sets and SQL*Net-certified firewalls.
The OCI driver requires SQL*Net libraries on the client; since these are written in C, the driver is not downloadable and is thus sometimes referred to as a fat-client configuration. "
