    Technical Specifications

    You can develop applications for the JDBC Client using J2SE 1.5.0_06 or higher, and the following APIs, which are supplied with the JDBC Client: 

    • JDBC 2.0 Optional Package
    • JNDI 1.2
    • JTA 1.0.1
    JDBC 3.0 API J2SE 1.5.0_06 or higher
    J2EE Connector Architecture J2SE 1.5.0_06 or higher
    JDBC 2.0 Core API J2SE 1.5.0_06 or higher
    JDBC 2.0 Optional Package J2SE 1.5.0_06 or higher
    XADataSource J2SE 1.5.0_06 or higher and minimum J2EE 1.2
    DataSource, ConnectionPoolDataSource JNDI 1.2

    Standard installations of J2SE on some platforms do not include the jar file containing the extended encoding set that is required to support some of the less common database code pages. To verify whether your J2SE version provides extended code page support, check that charsets.jar is installed in the lib subdirectory of your J2SE installation directory.

    If you do not have the required file, re-install J2SE, making sure you install the international version of J2SE.
