According to this page:

"The Oracle JDBC server-side internal driver (KPRB) is built into Oracle Jserver that is Oracle8i's tightly integrated server-side Java engine. It requires no additional installation or configuration. You can use the JDBC KPRB server driver in any Java program running in Oracle8i, that needs to access the SQL engine, such as: Java stored procedures, enterprise beans, and Java servlets."
