I have using j2sdk_1_4_2 I have Oracle9i on my PC, it contains two JDBCdrivers class111.jar and Class12.jar.
I have tried adding first class111.jar and then class12.jar to my classpath.
But I get the following error
java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver
Do I need to download another later version of classes jar that contains a driver that can interface with j2sdk_1_4_2.
Thanks for any help.

I believe the filename for the oracle drivers is classes12.zip.
