I currently have the jdbc driver 10.x installed and I cannot get rid of it. I deleted every instance of ojdbc14.jar on the server. and I put classes12.jar in /$catalina_home/common/lib/ I stop tomcat restart apache and than start tomcat again. and every time a create a connection and run the following code:

DatabaseMetaData dmd = connection.getMetaData();
out.println("JDBC Driver version: " + dmd.getDriverVersion());

I get the following output:

JDBC Driver version:

I guess this must be classpath issue.

1. Check the PATH environment variable to make sure it doesn't contain any reference to Oracle installation directory.
2. Write a simple java class to print System.getProperty("java.class.path") and run this inside the tomcat.
3. Try setting the classes12.jar to bootclasspath using -Xbootclasspath:/p<classes12.jar path>
I agree. Here's the link:
