    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
    For Applications Using Minimum Product Requirements
    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.


    Security Vulnerability Response Policy

    Priority* Time Guideline Version(s)
    High Risk
    (CVSS 8+ or industry equivalent)
    30 days Active (i.e. latest shipping version) and all Supported versions
    Medium Risk
    (CVSS 5-to-8 or industry equivalent)
    180 days Active (i.e. latest shipping version)
    Low Risk
    (CVSS 0-to-5 or industry equivalent)
    Next major release or best effort Active (i.e. latest shipping version)

    * Priority is established based on the current version of the Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS), an open industry standard for assessing the severity of computer system security vulnerabilities. For additional information on this scoring system, refer to
