I am using following 2 properties at the time of connecting to oracle.
driver.class.name = oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver
url = jdbcracle:thin:@ipaddr:1521:testdb
Moreover, I referred docs on sun.com which says following:
"A native-API partly Java technology-enabled driver converts JDBC calls into calls on the client API for Oracle, Sybase, Informix, DB2, or other DBMS.
Note that, like the bridge driver, this style of driver requires that some binary code be loaded on each client machine."
Can you throw some more light on above reference from the doc keeping the url and driver class in the middle.

It depends on the connection string you are using. Several types are bundled inside this jar.
