 New Features in 19c and 18.3 JDBC driver & Universal Connection Pool (UCP)

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 driver introduce few enhancements and a new property file ( that simplifies the connection to Autonomous Transaction Processing (ATP) and Autonomous Data Warehousing (ADW).

  • Java Standards: Supports JDK11, JDK10, JDK9, JDK8 and compliant to JDBC 4.3 and JDBC 4.2 by JDBC drivers (ojdbc10.jar(19c) and ojdbc8.jar) and Universal Connection Pool (ucp.jar)
  • Connection: Easy Connect Plus for easier TCPS connections and passing connection properties (19c only); new file to set connection properties; different ways for setting TNS_ADMIN; setting server's domain name (DN) cert as a connection property; and support of a new wallet_property (my_wallet_directory);
  • Performance: Reactive Streams Ingest (RSI) for streaming data into the Oracle Database (19c only); Oracle connection manager (CMAN) in traffic director mode (CMAN-TDM)
  • Scalability: Oracle RAC data affinity; and shard routing APIs for mid-tiers
  • High Availability: Transparent Application Continuity (TAC); AC support in DRCP; and AC support for legacy Oracle JDBC types implemented as concrete Java classes
  • Security:  Automatic provider resolution for OraclePKIProvider; support for Key Store Service (KSS); and HTTPS proxy support
  • Datatypes: Accessibility to PL/SQL associate arrays; Oracle REF CURSOR as IN bind parameter; and JSON datatype validation
