1.I tried to connect to a database through a java class and I successfully extracted the required results.
2. When I try to connect to a database using an
Applet I am getting the following error:
"on the applet it is printing sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver"
Hear is the code:
try{
Class.forName("sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver");
Connection con=DriverManager.getConnectio("jdbc dbc:sampleDSN","system","manager");
s = con.createStatement();
}catch (Exception e)
{results.setText(e.getMessage());}

Applets are run on the client machine.
You are using the jdbc dbc bridge the datasource
sampleDSN you set up on your machine is not set on
the machine of the client.
As you are using the jdbc dbc bridge I assume you are using access or some local Database if you
want to run Jdbc code in an applet it must connect to a proper database server.

Hi John,
thanks for ur response.
I am trying it on my local machine and the database is on the local machine(it is MS access).
it is throwing exception at Class.forName("sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver")
do i need to set something else.
Thanks
