You will need to use classes111.zip, or if there is a recent update use classes12.zip. Don't forget to update your classpath / path

hi indrajit!
There are many Type 3 and Type 4 drivers available for connecting to oracle8i.For eg. you can use oci8 driver or perhaps the most commonly used oracle thin driver.
use the following for oracle thin driver:----
url=jdbc racle:thin:@ipaddress of the 8i server: port(usually 1521):HostString
driver=oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver
For this to work properly you should have classes111.zip or classes12.zip in your classpath.
