    What's the difference between ojdbc6.jar and ojdbc8.jar

    a2dc9dc9-08f5-419f-9884-44018a3e5936

      Hello,

       

      can somebody help me with the following questions. What's the difference between ojdbc6.jar and ojdbc8.jar?

       

      Is the only difference the compilation for Java 8 or are there also changes within the driver itself, e.g. for better performance when communicating with the database?

      Is there any change log available what has changed between ojdbc6.jar and ojdbc8.jar?

       

      I'm running a Oracle Database 12c Enterprise Edition Release 12.1.0.2.0 - 64bit Production with an IBM WebSphere application which runs with Java 8 and everything works fine with the ojdbc6.jar driver.

      So I'm wondering if changing the driver would add any benefit. Never touch a running system

       

      Thanks

      Daniel
