Using JDBC, the Universal Connection Pool (UCP) and the embedded JVM (OJVM) through technical articles, white papers, code samples, FAQs and more.
Whether on the cloud or on-premises, developing Java applications with Oracle Autonomous Databases is fast and simple. Java developers can take advantage of the latest features, such as Oracle Autonomous Database, performance self-tuning, high availability, in-memory processing, and pluggable databases to design and develop a high performant, scalable, and reliable applications. Oracle Database 19c and 18c JDBC drivers introduce a new property file (ojdbc.properties) along with few other features that simplifies the connection to Autonomous Transaction Processing (ATP) and Autonomous Data Warehousing (ADW).
