Hi, I'm trying to run an application that connects to an Oracle server. It runs fine from within JDeveloper. However I need to be able to run it from the command line but when I try to do this I get an error: java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: java/sql/Savepoint
I'm using jdk1.4.1 and I have all the Oracle classes/jars I need in my classpath. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated as I have no experience with Oracle or SQL.
I had faced same problem some days ago when i changed my classes12.zip(Oracle JDBC drivers for 8.1.7) to ojdbc14.jar (Oracle JDBC drivers v188.8.131.52) then I switched back to classes12.zip
hope this add something

I actually had both classes12.zip and ojdbc14.jar in my classpath originally. I played around with them a bit, and changed the order of them in the classpath, putting classes12.zip first, followed by ojdbc14.jar. I wasn't aware that the order of classes in a classpath made any difference, but this seemed to work and I no longer have the error. So thanks!
New classes file name for JDK 1.4 and beyond Beginning with this release the classes files for JDK 1.4 and beyond will be named ojdbc<jdk ver>.jar. So, the classes file for JDK 1.4 is named ojdbc14.jar. The names for the JDK 1.1 and 1.2 classes files will not be changed. We will not provide .zip versions of the classes files beyond JDK 1.2.
classes12.zip support the concept of savepoints using an oracle extension so it doesn't require java.sql.Savepoint. ojdbc14.jar uses java.sql.Savepoint:
Savepoints--Savepoints are supported in ojdbc14.jar. They are also supported in classes12 and classes11 via Oracle extensions. The extensions are forward compatible with ojdbc14.jar. See the JavaDoc for more details.
