Sorry for my stupid, I still don't know how to form the data source url for creating a connection. Example: If I have a MS Access database- "JavaTest.mdb", I write code as follows, It always says cannot find the data source. WHAT should the variable "url" be?

Class.forName("jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver"); //loads the driver
String url = "jdbc dbc:MS Access;DBQ=c:\\JavaTest.mdb";
Connection con = DriverManager.getConnection(
url, "userID", "passwd");

If somedoay can help me, please mail to me "fengzixuan@21cn.com".
Thanks and wish you good luck!

The URl should be "jdbc dbc:yourdatasourcename" In your own case it will be "jdbc.odbc.JavaTest" Since you are using MS Access.

Also don�t forget to register your database at the odbc in the control panel.
