Dear All,
If I want to make dos based database application using database in ascii format then will it be possible through JDBC ?
Please reply,

In ASCII format? wow! You must have some special needs. This is just an idea, but if you could put the DOS machine on a network (using novell drivers or perhaps windows for workgroups DOS network drivers?) then you might be able to map the harddrive as a network drive on a windows machine and then I'm pretty sure you could link up JDBC, (even if it's only through ODBC).

I have seen things you people would not believe, attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion, c-beams sparkling in the dark near the Tennhauser Gate. All these moments will be lost in time, like tears in the rain.

Dear Adam,
I have established network in which I have novell netware on server and all are dos based machines on client side without hard disk. But first of all I wanted to know whether I can make an application which can run only on DOS based i.e. without use of ODBC, will it be possible ??
I have seen one accounting software which is made using C/C++ and it has only dos based plateform which does not required odbc or something like that. if java is a advaced to C/C++ then why it can not possible in JAVA ?
Hope you can reply of my questions.. ??
Thanks,
Dhaval Gandhi
