I would like to try connecting to an Oracle 8.1.6 database, using an Oracle 8.1.7 Type 4 JDBC driver.

Is this possible?
Are there any issues with connecting an 8.1.7 driver with and 8.1.6 database?

Yes. Do it without any concerns. Oracle maintains excellent backward-compatibility in their drivers. The 8.1.6 documentation details that it is compatible with all 8.x version Oracle servers and even some 7.x versions. I've been using the 8.1.7 drivers for several months with an 8.1.6 installation with no problems -- large enterprise system using WebSphere and container managed persistence. Actually, you can't even find the 8.1.6 drivers to download anymore at the Oracle site. Your only choices are 8.1.5 and 8.1.7.
