Hi,

I am running a simple app fetching records from DB, on windows. Now, I need to run the app on a unix machine. Do I need to change the jdbc and odbc14.jar files? Does it require any code change?

Regards,
Amol

I just tried deploying it on Unix machine, and the app executed fine.
But, I am not sure why it did because I think odbc jar is OS depenedent.
Any comments please.

Where did you get JDBC Drivers? Check the instructions.

From Oracle's site. They did not ask for platform. Downloaded odbc14.jar and deployed on both Windows and Linux. Went fine in both cases. Maybe its a thin driver independent of OS.
Between, over there it was mentioned "Note: For platform specific JDBC-OCI libraries See...". Is OCI driver type I kind, and so is platform dependent?

This is exactly what I said in the previous post.

My query : Are OCI drivers Type I kind?

"Maybe its a thin driver independent of OS" - it sounds like a question for me or at least you were still uncertain.
