No, that is normally not necessary. I think you will only need the oracle client drivers.

Oracle server components can be installed either on your own development machine, or on another machine reachable on the network.

Oracle client components need to be installed on your development machine, and Oracle JDBC drivers must also be installed on the development machine, because it will be needed by your Java Code to access the local or remote Oracle database.
