Install Oracle Database client files for Apache Tomcat

If you want your Java application to be able to connect to a full featured and functional Oracle Database, please follow the steps below.

  • Stop the Tomcat server:

      $ sudo /opt/bitnami/ stop tomcat
  • Download the corresponding JDBC drivers for Oracle Database from the Oracle official website. Pay attention to the server version. For example, for a 11g Release 2 server, you will need OJDBC6.jar.

  • Unzip it and place it under the folder /opt/bitnami/tomcat/lib/ext

  • Start the Tomcat server again:

      $ sudo /opt/bitnami/ start tomcat
