I�m doing an application on websphere 4.0 , I want to install oracle JDBC driver on my machine I have oracle 8I on the server while my machine(Client) have Oracle Ver. 7
From the documentation of oracle I cannont make out which JDBC driver I should install.
I�m pasting the Oracle�s document here.
These are the driver versions in the 8.1.7 release:
- JDBC OCI Driver 8.1.7 Client-side JDBC for use on a machine where OCI 8.1.7 is installed.
- JDBC Thin Driver 8.1.7 100% Java client-side JDBC for use in applets and applications.
- JDBC Thin Server-side Driver 8.1.7 JDBC for use by Java Stored Procedures or by Java CORBA objects running in Oracle 8.1.7. This driver is typically used in a middle tier server.
- JDBC Server-side Internal Driver 8.1.7 Server-side JDBC for use by Java Stored procedures or by Java CORBA objects running in Oracle 8.1.7. This driver used to be called the "JDBC Kprb Driver".
Or should I use Oracle 7 JDBC OCI and JDBC Thin Drivers

I agree. Here's the link:
