Fast Connection Failover (FCF) Within OAS 10.1.3.x

If you read the 10.2 JDBC developer guide you will find that you will find you can subscribe remotely to ONS within the driver itself without the need for an oracle client.

Remote ONS Subscription

OAS 10.1.3.x ships with the 10.1.0.5 JDBC driver, so is it right to assume it doesn't support FCF out of the box?

After a recent customer visit they swapped out to the 10.2.0.4 JDBC driver as they assumed 10.1.0.5 was not supported and would not work.

That is not true in actual fact 10.1.0.5 does work and the ONS subscription occurs within opmn.xml. However if you try to use the 10.1.0.5 driver outside of OAS in a stand alone client then it won't work as you can't subscribe to ONS with that driver outside of OAS 10.1.3.x.

It is all explained here.
