Database driver to use

Hi,

We upgraded our database from 9i to 10g and webpshere from 5-1 to 6-1. We are still using the old database driver in the upgraded (6-1, 10g) environment. This driver is the one we used for the ws5-1 9i setup. Should we change this? Is there a 10g driver that we should be using? I was talking to our dba and he said we were using 9i driver with 10g helper classes.
"ojdbc14.jar" is the name of the driver we are using.

We are currently having some max thread issues and every occurance of the max threads is started by a stalled thread created by a database query. Just wondering if the driver could be the issue.

There is an updated ojdbc14.jar with the 10g database, you should definitely use one of the latest. We found various bugs with the 9i version as well as early versions of even the 10g. Get the one with the latest 10.2 download.
