Hi, I am following sun's tutorial to getting started with jdbc. Here I am, totally lost. Class.forName("sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver"); -- this line works.
Class.forName("jdbc.DriverXYZ"); what should we use instead of DriverXYZ. Then how can I know that driver is installed in my pc? I have installed Oracle8 and also I have MS access. Thanks a lot for your help, Vanitha.
each driver has their specific ways to connect to their database. Although the methods to connect are the same, the parameter values are different. example: using MSAccess and the jdbc dbc driver that is included in the jdk 1.3.x (after you have registered the database mdb as an ODBC datasource):
Connecting to Oracle using the ODBC:JDBC bridge is the same procedure as with the access database(assuming that the right drivers are already on your system). The text in bold is where you insert your own values Jamie
