The Java Ranch has thousands of visitors every week, many with surprisingly similar names. To avoid confusion we have a naming convention, described at http://www.javaranch.com/name.jsp . We require names to have at least two words, separated by a space, and strongly recommend that you use your full real name. Please choose a new name which meets the requirements. Thanks.
Hi, Follow these steps. 1. Create an ODBC DSN - Using the Windows Control Panel, create an ODBC DSN (data source name) for the database. 2. Load the driver - In a JDBC program, one of the first things to do is to load the JDBC driver by calling the forName() static method of the Class class. forName() takes one string parameter: the name of the driver along with its package. For JavaSoft's JDBC-ODBC Bridge, this string is "sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver". Therefore, the call would look like: Class.forName("sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver"); 3. Establish a database connection Once the JDBC driver loads, you can establish a connection to the database using the DriverManager.getConnection() method. This method's first argument is a string that contains the JDBC URL for the database. The second and third parameters are the user name and password, respectively. A JDBC URL is formulated using the following pattern: jdbc:<subprotocol>:<subname> A connection to the database could be estd. in this manner: Connection connection_ = DriverManager.getConnection("jdbcdbc:myDSN", "sa", ""); I hope you must have got it.
