NoNoClassDefFoundError: oracle/security/o3logon/O3LoginClientHelper

The following error occured attempting to connect with Oracle 8.1.7 and driver classes12_g.zip with Java 1.4.2.  Is the driver compatable with 8.1.7 and 1.4.2? What could be the problem?

I would guess that either

a. classes12_g.zip has to be unzipped to reveal a contained jar.
b. classes12_g.zip has to be renamed to classes12_g.jar

All jars should be in your lib/ext dirs

Think I've got your answer:

classes12_g.zip is the debug version for use with jdk1.2 and jdk1.3 and to connect to a 9i database.  I would suggest getting hold of classes12.zip from the link below:

Worth renaming it to classes12_g.jar anyway to see what happens. Make sure it's in your classpath or in all jre/lib/ext

Not necessary.

It certainly would be if he's put it into the extensions directory - it wouldn't work otherwise
