Clearly not a JSP question. Moving to the JDBC forum.

Difference between OCI and thin: Oracle JDBC docs ( need to register with Oracle site )
Performance difference between the two drivers: Java Programming with Oracle JDBC - By Donald Bales
Deployment differences - the thin drivers are a self-contained jar file that can just be added to the classpath to use where as the OCI drivers require a full install of the Oracle client on every machine. I prefer the thin drivers as they make deployment of my apps easier. I have not experienced any performance problems in 3 years of using the thin drivers.
