Oc4j and  8.1.7 client

Update:10-11Source: network consolidation
I need to use the latest production version of oc4j -> My client needs use to be able to use the oci drivers with the 8.1.7 client install. Is it possible to use with the 8.1.7 client install?
I can use the thin driver no problem, but the application requires the speed and extras that oci proviceds, especially with blob handling.
I can use the oci drivers on a machine with the 9i client installed, no problem.
But when I use it on a machine with the 8.1.7 client installed, I get (of course) and unsatisfied link error - it can't find ocijdbc9.
java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: no ocijdbc9 in java.library.path

If I down load the 9i jdbc drivers and install them, I get a jvm message stating that a dependant library - oracore9.dll - is missing. I've tried changing my Oracle_home variable, adding the /lib directory to the class and replacing the \jdbc\classes12dms.jar with a remnamed version of (so I have an older version of that doesn't call the 9i jdbc libraries) but to no avail. The must be a way to get to look for the correct version of the oci driver....
Any help would be greatly appreciated...

The Best Answer

The Oracle9iAS R2 Client CD on Windows is available. Please download the client software from and this should have new version of OCI drivers. Please install this on a separate Oracle home and include this in your $ORACLE_HOME/bin in your path and then start OC4J and you should be in good shape.
