I would check to see what version of the JDBC driver you are using and how the application is configured to find it. Generally its done through the CLASSPATH environment variable, which lists directories to go looking for "jar" (and potentially "zip") files. The driver file is typically named something like "ojdbc14.jar", older versions simetimes were called "" or "classes12.jar". I suspect it might be using the incorrect driver or it might be running into an older one and grabbing that one first.  

Once you find the JDBC jar file, you can temporarily rename it to, open with winzip, and look at the "" file, which will contain the release information.  

Also need to consider if its using "thin" or "OCI" mode. For OCI you need to look at the client settings too (tnsnames.ora, TNS_ADMIN setting, etc).  

Also, what error are you getting back from the Java program? Might want to write a very simple Java program that just tries to connect and dumps out a stack trace and the Exception error message on failure, if it does not provide that already.
