Trying to start sqlcl 18.2.0 with jdk 1.8.0_181 or jdk 1.8.0_161 but id doesn't work. The previous version of sqlcl i used was 17.4.0 and was working fine. I am using oracle client version

Error Message = Could not initialize class oracle.jdbc.OracleDriver

    Sounds like there is an incompatibility between the JDBC driver and the version of Java you are running.  Are you sure SQLcl is not picking up a Java 9 jre instead and trying to use the 11.2 client JDBC driver?

    Hope this helps!
