This means that you need different releases of the driver depending on 
what version of the JDK you work with on the client side.   They require 
facilities which exist from that version and forward. 
require at least a JDK 1.1, and Classes 1.2 require at least a JDK-1.2.    
We have verified here that the driver in work against Oracle 
7, but we have tried with the optional JDBC 2.0 facilities yet.

You may have a Java-machine running inside a Oracle8i or Oracle9i database,
  where the JDBC-connection benefit from this.   AFAIK this internal Java 
machine does not exist in Oracle 8.0.

This refers to if you use some of the new object oriented extensions to 
Oracle, where a single "cell" may contain several values.

Use the latest available to you on your given platform.  I have found that 
the code is newer in than in, which may or 
may not mean something.

If you have the option to run on a machine where Oracle is installed, you 
may want to look into using the "thick" driver, as this supposedly is 
faster than the thin drivers.
