Issue/Introduction

Where does Applications Manager keep the Oracle ojdbc driver and how do I change the driver version?

Environment

Release : 9.3.x

Component : APPLICATIONS MANAGER

Resolution

After Applications Manager installation, the ojdbc*.jar file is copied to 2 directories:

  • $AW_HOME/ojdbc or %AW_HOME%\ojdbc directory (this is only a temp directory)
  • $AW_HOME/web/classes or %AW_HOME%\web\classes directory (this is what Applications Manager uses)

To change the ojdbc driver version used by Applications Manager, simply replace the ojdbc*.jar in the classes directory, and restart the Applications Manager processes or service (Windows)

NOTE that any unused ojdbc*.jar files should be deleted or moved out of the classes directory as simply renaming may cause Applications Manager to still find and use the driver.
