Wud appreciate if some one can help me with this:
"java.exe application error"
This error occurs when I am using servlets to communicate with MS-Access database. Even after this error has occured I am able to access the database. The problem that has no solution with me, is that, in the subsequent pages I am not able to access values in the session variables that have been already stored. What is that I need to do to overcome this.

Don't use Access. Even in an all-Microsoft environment, Access isn't recommended for Internet servers. It's not designed for multi-user access, nor was the Java JDBC-ODBC bridge.

Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.

You can get a free copy of IBM DB2 here -
It is a pretty massive download unfortunately.

Oh wow, if you want a database, just use mysql. DB2 is a bit of a hog, and overkill, if the person currently uses Access. is the database site.

To get a JDBC driver, try this:

After all that, hopefully your java.exe error will go away. It seems very odd that your app would continue to work (sort of) after throwing this kind of error. Does this happen in a Windows pop-up dialog box? Or in a < insert servlet runner > log file?
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
