Using MS Access Database Through JDBC:ODBC

You can easily connect to a MS Access database by using JDBC. First, you need to set up the data source for your MS Access database using the ODBCAdministrator. You can find the ODBC icon in the Control Panel. For example, say you have a database booklist.mdb, you set up a ODBC data source named DBbooklist for it. Then you can use these java code to access booklist.mdb in your java program.

 import java.sql.*;public class Showbooklist {  public static void main(String args[]) {    Connection con;    Statement stmt;    ResultSet rs;    try {      Class.forName("sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver");    } catch(java.lang.ClassNotFoundException e) {    System.err.print("ClassNotFoundException: ");    System.err.println(e.getMessage());    }    try {    con = DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:odbc:DBbooklist","", "");    stmt = con.createStatement();    rs = stmt.executeQuery("select * from books");    int i=0;    while ( {      String s = rs.getString("title");      float n = rs.getFloat("price");      i+=1;      System.out.println(i+"  "+s+"  "+n);    }    rs.close();    stmt.close();    con.close();    } catch(SQLException ex) {    System.err.println("SQLException: " + ex.getMessage());    }  }}
