Hello,
Here is the situation:
1. Oracle 8.0.5 runs on NT
2. Tables reside on NT
3. I want to have a java program run on Unix connect to NT machine through JDBC driver to make queries.
Is this possible?
If yes how do I do this? Can I use Sun Unix JDBC driver or should I buy a third party driver for this job?
Thanks in advance
Suresh

You need a Oracle JDBC driver running on your Unix box. Since Java is cross platform, you can use the same driver for NT and Unix.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
