Does anyone know of any reliable comparisons of JDBC performance using Oracle JDBC driver vs SQL Server JDBC driver? We are trying to evaluate reasons for going with Oracle vs SQL Server.
Thanks!

you can be sure that there will be much busier sites than yours which run both.
The technical abilities of your staff should be a more important factor.
(or security even)?

I wouldn't say there are much differences in the JDBC driver regarding performance (talking about pure JDBC driver). The biggest difference should happen in the DB itself.
For Oracle there exists also an OCI driver (native) which can be called from java. This driver increases performance immens.
The other thing is also which machine are you running your db. Oracle needs a bigger box then MS SQL Server (Hope you really meant this with SQL Server).
