Oracle is one of the few DBMS where older versions of the database are often not accepted by newer clients. I can recall using a 10.* client to connect to a 7 (it might have been 8) version of the database only to get the message implying I needed to upgrade the database to connect with that client. It lead to a frantic search for a virtually non-existent version of the older client. In that regard you may consider a version of the JDBC driver for that version of Oracle.
