Juergen Hoeller opened SPR-14629 and commented

As mentioned in recent comments on #18398, the Oracle 12c JDBC driver has a bug that leads to a cursor leak when getParameterType throws an exception. Our #18398 change in Spring Framework 4.2.5 unfortunately reveals that cursor leak, ironically as a side effect of consistent runtime behavior which implies consistent exposure to that leak :-(

Let's consider a spring.jdbc.getParameterType.ignore default of true for Oracle 12c for the time being.

Affects: 4.2.5, 4.3 GA

Revised for 4.3.3 and 4.2.8 now: StatementCreatorUtils does not use getParameterType on any Oracle driver by default now. If you're on 12c (possibly 12.2 or a custom patch) and would like it to be used, specify spring.jdbc.getParameterType.ignore=false. Since those calls seem to be expensive as well, it is arguably better to only use them when actually needed anyway.

Note that 5.0 is streamlined in this respect: no tracking of drivers without getParameterType support there, and no special exclusion of Oracle drivers either. We essentially expect an up-to-date, fully patched driver at that point (early 2017), in combination with statement pooling. If there are still issues there, the escape hatch remains: spring.jdbc.getParameterType.ignore=true
