The following are the top 10 documents that are linked to SRs as solutions, for JDBC issues, from Jan 2014 thru Mar 2014.

401934.1 Starting With Oracle JDBC Drivers: This FAQ provides practical information when starting with Oracle JDBC drivers. A description of the Oracle JDBC drivers is provided so that you can choose which Oracle JDBC driver can be used with your Java application.
1361107.1 Troubleshooting ORA-3137 [12333] Errors Encountered When Using Oracle JDBC Driver: Oracle Customer Support has observed a large volume of issues reported by customers experiencing ORA-3137 [12333] and occasionally ORA-3137 [1010] errors when connecting to an Oracle RDBMS using the Oracle JDBC driver.  This document enumerates troubleshooting approaches that have proven successful.
566573.1 Fast Connection Failover (FCF) Test Client Using 11g JDBC Driver and 11g RAC Cluster  how-to demonstrates a simple java client that shows how to use and verify the Implicit Connection Cache with Fast Connection Failover (FCF) against an 11g RAC cluster.
1140473.1 JDBC Connection Hang  JDBC client is waiting for Database return result, but you can't see any session from Database in the V$Session view.
762286.1 End To End Examples of using SSL With Oracle's JDBC THIN Driver: The following how-to demonstrates, creating a self signed oracle wallet for the server and client, configuring the database to use TCPS with the server key, configuring an SQL client to connect to TCPS and create simple java clients that shows how to connect through to TCPS in several different examples.
467804.1 How To Determine The Exact JDBC Driver Version (9.x - 11.x) For Standalone Programs Retrieve diagnostic information about your JDBC/JDK environment that is especially useful for Support Analysts .Includes: database version, JDBC driver version, JDK version, PATH, BOOTSTRAP, list of jars in the JRE extensions directory, CLASSPATH and JDBC URL. (Standalone Programs)
467808.1 Standard JDBC diagnostics for Application Servers Retrieve diagnostic information about your JDBC/JDK environment used within a Java Enterprise container that is especially useful for Support Analysts. Includes: database version, JDBC driver version, JDK version, PATH, BOOTSTRAP, JRE Extensions directory, CLASSPATH and JDBC URL and debug flags information. ( Application Server specific)
944692.1 Master Note: Understanding the "OALL8 is in an Inconsistent State" Exception   "OALL8 is in an inconsistent state" - primarily in application server log files but also sometimes in the log file from a large standalone Java application. The exceptions were intermittent and could not be reproduced at will.
297490.1 Is Transparent Application Failover (TAF) Supported on the JDBC Thin Driver?  The Oracle JDBC thin driver does not support TAF. TAF is only supported by the JDBC OCI driver.  Transparent Application Failover (TAF) is a feature of the Java Database Connectivity (JDBC) Oracle Call Interface (OCI) driver.
334471.1 Understanding Transparent Application Failover (TAF) and Fast Connection Failover (FCF)   This note is intended to give explanation on two RAC concepts, Transparent Application Failover (TAF) and Fast Connection Failover (FCF).
