When connecting to Oracle 8i from ArcInfo Workstation version 8.1.2 on Solaris, the following error occurs:
Arc> connect oracle username/password
ld.so.1: /esri/arcexe81/bin/dbi_oracle: fatal: libjava.so: open failed:
No such file or directory
Server ops, pid: 1234 terminated abnormally
The $ARCHOME/bin/dbi_oracle executable needs to link against the Oracle LIBJAVA.SO library when connecting.
