In order to connect to a Foxpro database you will need to use the jdbc to odbc driver. I am not sure the exact driver name, but you would basically connect the same way as with other connections
the "location/sid" is the odbc dsn name.
Hope that helps steer you in the right direction.
So what are you using Java for to connect to Foxpro? There could be other solutions that might work better and faster?
