I did this to test the latest ojdbc6.jar found on
connecting to an Oracle 10g DB:

unzip -p $GROUPER_HOME/lib/jdbcSamples/ojdbc6.jar META-INF/MANIFEST.MF\
| egrep 'Specification|Implementation'
Implementation-Vendor: Oracle Corporation
Implementation-Title: JDBC
Specification-Vendor: Sun Microsystems Inc.
Specification-Title: JDBC
Specification-Version: 4.0

The same test will be done with an Oracle 11g DB and I'll report the
