2241220 - JDBC driver not supported for ORACLE database 12.1 although SAP Note 1777021 was applied


Java AS Server cannot be started after changing the Oracle JDBC driver to version 12:

jvm_bootstrap.out contains the following error:
Caused by: JDBC driver not supported for ORACLE database.
Additionally the opensql implementation jar file in the cluster directory is not on the required level even though the SAP Note 1777021 was already applied.
unzip -c  [DIR_INSTANCE]/j2ee/cluster/bootstrap/ META-INF/MANIFEST.MF | grep Implementation-Version
gives back the version: 7.3101...

However the required SP level is SP7 for version 7.31 (therefore the version should be at least 7.3107...)

The required version details are in the SAP Note:
#1777021 - J2EE: Introducing Support for Oracle 12
