Hi Everyone
I am new to JDBC.
I have Oracle 8.1.7
j2sdk1.4.0 installed on my Windows XP machine.
Can anyone get me the links I have to go through to connect to Oracle.
Do I have to download any drivers specifically???
Everything is so confusing for me.
Is there any detailed procedure anywhere?
I have been searching for information for a while
and I just now read that Oracle 8.1.7 supports only jdk1.2.x. If that is the case ,Do I need Oracle 9i?
Thanks
Metelda

At first you must download any oracle JDBC driver (from oracle web or anywhere else). It is a .jar file, that you will put in your classpath. Some information could be found at JDBC intro, but that's not the only information source -- I googled it using: oracle + jdbc.
... I just now read that Oracle 8.1.7 supports only jdk1.2.x. If that is the case ,Do I need Oracle 9i?

No, that has nothing to do with JDBC. Due to you're new in that, it's not important now.

Oracle 9i is available at Oracle's site. It may not be the full version, but it should be enough to start learning.

Hi,
Have a look at the JDBC Page on OTN.
This has links to documentation, sample code and JDBC driver downloads.
Hope this helps.
Sujatha.

If you have Oracle 8.1.7 you don;t have to down load anything when you install it. The JDBC jar classes are installed in the directory named jdbc. SImply copy this file typically called class111.jar and include in your CLASSPATH variable.
