Assumptions and Requirements

This section discusses basic assumptions about your environment and requirements of your system so that you can run Oracle SQLJ.

Assumptions About Your Environment

The following assumptions are made about the system on which you will be running Oracle SQLJ.


If you are using a non-Oracle JDBC driver, you must do the following:


Requirements for Using Oracle SQLJ

The following are required to use Oracle SQLJ:


In SQLJ release 8.1.6 and earlier, was a subset of This is no longer the case. You must now specify as well as in your CLASSPATH.  


  • If you will be running only SQLJ applications that have already been translated, compiled, and customized, then you will not need

  • The and files are uncompressed for maximum portability.


Supported JDK Versions

If you are using a Sun Microsystems JDK, note that Oracle SQLJ release 8.1.7 works in both the JDK 1.2.x and JDK 1.1.x environments. You can use in conjunction with to work in either environment. Or, if you are employing the Oracle JDBC 8.1.7 driver, you can use with one of the,, or files, depending on whether your Java environment supports JDK 1.1.x, JDK 1.2, or J2EE.

Note the following regarding migration of SQLJ source code:

Be sure to use an appropriate version of the JDBC driver. See "PATH and CLASSPATH for Oracle JDBC".

Note that as of release 8.1.7, neither Oracle SQLJ nor Oracle JDBC support JDK 1.0.2. This includes applets running in browsers that use JDK 1.0.2 except where special preparations have been made. (This chapter does not discuss applets. Refer to "Running SQLJ in Applets".)

JServer Configuration

This guide presumes that system configuration issues are outside the duties of most SQLJ developers. Therefore, configuration of the Oracle8i JServer (formerly known as the Java Option) is not covered here. For information about setting Java-related configuration parameters (such as JAVA_POOL_SIZE), see the Oracle8i Java Developer's Guide.

If you need information about configuring the multi-threaded server, dispatcher, or listener (which may be particularly relevant if you are coding Enterprise JavaBeans or CORBA objects), see the Net8 Administrator's Guide.
