You can find this out through the DatabaseMetaData class using the getDriverName(), getDriverVersion(), getMajorDriverVersion(), etc.. Jamie
Following Jamie's advice, this is the version data that I got from my driver: JDBC version# = 184.108.40.206.0 Database version# = Oracle7 Server Release 220.127.116.11.0 - Production Release With the distributed, replication and parallel query options I then looked up the Oracle JDBC faq and it says:
JDBC 8.1.7 drivers can talk to RDBMS 9.0.1, 8.1.7, 8.1.6, 8.1.5, 8.0.6, 8.0.5, 8.0.4 and 7.3.4.
My question is this: Is 18.104.22.168 equivalent to 7.3.4 ? There is actually no mention of 22.214.171.124 in the FAQ. TIA Pho
