How to determine what OJDBC driver file is being used when referencing oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver

I administer Websphere and one of the apps I have installed does not have a datasource associated to it.  All of the other applications that are installed use their own datasources and are associated to a certain OJDBC14.jar file.  I am in the process of upgrading this jar file.  I need to find out how Websphere associates an OJDBC driver to the oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver class.  The application in question simply uses the following code to connect the database: jdbc.driverClassName=oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver...connection info.
Is the link between oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver and the OJDBC14.jar driver associated in a CLASSPATH?  If so, how do I modify this in Websphere environment?

Well it sounds like the easy way would be to add "-verbose" option to the java JVM arguments.  This will cause the JVM to write out (to SystemOut.log I believe) the class files that are loaded, and the path to the file in which this particular class file was found.

Do you know how to set JVM options/arguments?
