Does anybody know why Oracle has never changed the name of the file containing its JDBC drivers from
classes12.zip to something more modern (like a Jar file)? The generated documentation at the Oracle Web site is also like 1996-era JavaDoc. I’m curious as to whether there’s a good reason everything from Oracle appears to be outdated or whether they just don’t bother to update things. My best guess is that they fear breaking systems that list
classes12.zip by name, but that seems like a stretch.
