New Position: File Name Manager at Oracle Corp.

Goals:
  • Rename Oracle JDBC driver file names so they actually differ between different versions,

  • If possible, improve the manifest files so there is more difference than the "Implementation-Time" attribute between two different versions.
Required skills:
  • A true desire to help developer teams and production departments making sense of the different driver releases.
Disclaimer for the slow brained: This is a hoax. I took the decision to create this position simply because someone had to do something.

To fully enjoy this post, go to these pages (9i, 10g & 10gR2) and download the different versions of the JDBC driver: you can not miss them, they are all named ojdbc14.jar. You can then try your skills by figuring out sensible names for these files!

I am glad you liked the joke ;-)

Let's see if anyone in Oracle stumbles on it and reacts!
