New Oracle JDBC Driver for 9i and JDK 1.4

If you're using Oracle 9i and JDK 1.4, you might be interested to know the recommended JDBC Driver is no longer classes12.jar (I just discovered it from the tomcat-user mailing list). The Readme.txt (at least on Win2K) in $ORACLE_HOME/ora92/jdbc states the following:

New classes file name for JDK 1.4 and beyond
    Beginning with this release the classes files for JDK 1.4 and
    beyond will be named ojdbc<jdk ver>.jar. So, the classes file for
    JDK 1.4 is named ojdbc14.jar.  The names for the JDK 1.1
    and 1.2 classes files will not be changed. We will not provide
    .zip versions of the classes files beyond JDK 1.2.

It is about time Oracle got on the ball and started using jar files for this!
