MS Access - JDBC - ODBC - DAB's??

I developed this application using VisualAge 2.0, and just hard-coded some DB objects so I could load lists and text boxes etc. Now I want to hook it up to an Access Database (easiest for starters I think).
I'm pretty confused on the steps I should take for the easiest setup. I'm told you don't have to code your DAB's directly....
Anyone help would be great, and maybe if someone were to offer me their msn or icq # and you were gonna be online, you could guide me a bit!?
i know its a lot to ask...but I'm desparate to learn this!
Thanks!

Here is a small function example, which loads a combobox with data from an access database:void updateType() {

// Load the JDBC driver class
try {
Class.forName("sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver").newInstance();
// Connect to the database
Connection con = null;
Statement stmt = null;
ResultSet rs = null;
try {
con = DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc dbc:;DRIVER=Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb);DBQ=ETPScripts.mdb;PWD=mypass", "login", "password");
stmt = con.createStatement();
// Run a query
rs = stmt.executeQuery("select * from Type");
while (rs.next()) {
String description = rs.getString(2);
}
}
catch (Exception ex) {
System.out.println("Error");
}
finally {
if (rs != null) {
rs.close();
}
if (stmt != null) {
stmt.close();
}
if (con != null) {
con.close();
}
}
}
catch (Exception ex) {
System.out.println("Error");
}
}
Let me know, if you need anything else.
