We should upgrade our shipped oracle jdbc jar from the current ojdbc14.jar to ojdbc6.jar.
We only support Oracle 10 and 11 database and JDK 1.5 and 1.6. So we should move to the latest ojdbc.jar that is supported by both JDKs.
And according to the oracle FAQ ojdbc6.jar is it. http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/database/enterprise-edition/jdbc-faq-090281.html#02_03
This ticket should have subtasks that include the update of the oracle plugin and any needed documentation change.
