I have seen things you people would not believe, attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion, c-beams sparkling in the dark near the Tennhauser Gate. All these moments will be lost in time, like tears in the rain.
I've been trying to get it to work for the past many days now and nothing seems to be working. How can I work with Oracle Server 8.05 and JDK1.3? I mean, how do I configure Oracle to work with JDK1.3 instead of the JRE it came with (v1.1.1)? What drivers should I use with JDK1.3? I always get a make_c_state error running the sample application.
Thanks a lot. I tried downloading the 8.1.7 drivers but it looks for a DLL that I assume is specific to 8.1.7, so I guess it's not really backwards compatible with 8.05. The thin driver is working. The OCI driver doesn't. I'm using it for a servlet/jsp 3-tier architecture. I guess using the thin driver would be recommended, right?
I believe that the OCI driver(v.8.1.7) is compatible, but you are missing the DLL for the driver to work, or it can't find the DLL. This is a very common (and annoying!) error that can be frustrating to get right. It took me a couple of days to get mine working...This is one of the advantages of the thin drivers If you want to trouble shoot this problem, you can start here: http://otn.oracle.com/tech/java/sqlj_jdbc/htdocs/jdbc_faq.htm#_39_ (assuming it is the "Unsatisfied link error with OCI driver" but I would stick with the thin drivers anyway.
