Due to Oracle license restriction, there is NO public Maven repository provides Oracle JDBC driver. To use Oracle jdbc drive with Maven, you have to install it manually into your Maven local repository.

Here’s a guide to show you how to add an Oracle JDBC driver (“ojdbc6.jar“) into your Maven local repository, and also how to reference it in pom.xml.

1. Get Oracle JDBC Driver

Two ways to get the Oracle jdbc driver :

  1. Oracle.com
  2. Oracle database installed folder, for example, “{ORACLE_HOME}\jdbc\lib\ojdbc6.jar

2. Install It

To install your Oracle jdbc driver, issue following command :

mvn install:install-file -Dfile={Path/to/your/ojdbc.jar} -DgroupId=com.oracle 
-DartifactId=ojdbc6 -Dversion=11.2.0 -Dpackaging=jar

See following full example :

D:\>mvn install:install-file -Dfile=D:\app\mkyong\product\11.2.0\dbhome_1\jdbc\lib\ojdbc6.jar 
-DgroupId=com.oracle -DartifactId=ojdbc6 -Dversion=11.2.0 -Dpackaging=jar

Done, ojdbc6.jar is installed in your Maven local repository.

3. pom.xml

Now, you can reference it by declares following Oracle details in your pom.xml.

File : pom.xml

<project ...>
 
	<dependencies>>
 
		<!-- ORACLE database driver -->
		<dependency>
			<groupId>com.oracle</groupId>

			<version>11.2.0</version>
		</dependency>
