And you have to use the right JDBC driver as well.

At least up to the 9.* timeframe, Oracle used to release two JDBC 
drivers: one was a thin-only driver with its "JDBC" distribution, and 
one was the full "thick" driver, both of which were approximately the 
same size, and both called ojdbc14.jar. (Just to confuse things). But 
the thin-only driver could not use the OCI library.

I'm not sure if the situation has changed in 10.*. I do know that the 
JDBC driver in the Oracle InstantClient distribution is a full 
thick-and-thin driver, and comes bundled with the OCI libraries to boot..
