I'm just about to start a new project using java and access. I've done application localy on my pc with the odbc/jdbc bridge, but my question is it possible to do applets that connect to a database (access) on the web. My problem is how do I start this ........ do I need a winnt server, or sql server, do I need to install access on to the server ... ?? I've look over the groups here, and I feel even more confused then when I first though about it.

I'm just getting into JDBC myself, but as I understsand it you'll need to have a DSN set up on each client machine in order to do this. Each will also have to have the JDBCODBC-bridge too (I think).
