Currently we have an application in java 1.5 running in one plant. The database used in that plant is Oracle10i. Now we want to use the application in another plant which has Oracle8i as a database. The problem here is i couldn't find a jdbc jar file for Oracle8i compatible with Java 1.5. Is there any hope I can run the application in Java 1.5 against Oracle 8i database? Please let me know if you have any solution.
Thanks for your reply. Yes, I could use the earlier version jar file like classes12.jar with java 1.5. The problem I have is when I use those jar files, I might lose the some of the functionality provided by the latest JDBC jar file like connection caching. Is there anyway I can use the latest JDBC driver functions compatible with Oracle 8?
Otherwise I need to implement the functions.
