JDBC driver

Hi All

I am using DataDirect's Type 4 JDBC driver to connect to an Oracle database.
I am able to establish connection to the database but when it comes to executing SQL queries(like select), i get the following exception.

java.sql.SQLException: [DataDirect][Oracle JDBC Driver]This driver is locked for use with embedded applications.

Can anybody tell me what is meant by that? I am using this driver in a simple java project.

Thank you
