We are presently running JIRA version 6.4.13 with an Oracle 11.2g database as the back-end (Oracle Database 11g Enterprise Edition Release 188.8.131.52.0 - 64bit Production With the Partitioning option)
We are connecting to this using the ojdbc6.jar (Oracle JDBC driver 184.108.40.206.0).
In preparation for upgrading JIRA to version 7.x we need to upgrade our Oracle instance from 11.2g to 12c.
According to the instructions for Connecting JIRA to Oracle - I should be able to continue to use the same version of the ojdbc?.jar to access the upgraded database.
The text seemed to disappear on that post!
I use version Oracle OJDBC 220.127.116.11 with JIRA 7.1.0 as it avoids 'Protocol Violation's errors during standard operation that the packaged versions seems to experience on 12c. You would need to test this against your version of JIRA if you intend to swap before your upgrade.
However, worth noting the caveat listed - if you need to use XML Export, you will need to swap back to 18.104.22.168 temporarily.
Oracle is still not the best experience vs. Postgres.
