Just to clarify things : there is no ojdbc14.jar shipped with oracle 9.0.
As there are circumstances where one has to use the driver which comes with
the database installation (e.g. if one has to use oci connections), one
really does not have the choice between classes12.jar and ojdbc14.jar for
Also, oracle says in the 9.0 docs that the classes12.jar works for
jdk1.2.x, 1.3.x and 1.4
