Hello Ranchers, I'm new in Java. I have already written some little applets. Now I would like to write an applet that uses an MS-Access database. Is that possible? Are the necessary JDBC-drivers included in the JDK? Are there some examples found online? Many thanks,
it is possible, you DO need to have a jdbc driver they can be found at sun i believe. I don't know any online tutorials you can try findtutorials.com for some but a jdbc book would be the best. ------------------ I wish there was a button on my monitor to turn up the intellegince. Theres a button called 'brightness' but it doesn't work
"Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning."
There is a driver at the java.sun.com web site, but it is really only good for development / testing. I wouldn't deploy anything with it because it is too slow. It's called the jdbc-odbc Bridge driver. There is a pretty good tutorial on its use at the sun site as well. The situation is something like this: 1) install the driver and set up a DSN for your database 2) import java.sql.* into your class 3) load the driver 4) make a connection with your loaded driver 5) do something with your connection 6) close the connection
That should get you started. Nick [This message has been edited by Nick Riviera (edited November 10, 2000).]

oops. All of that code inside the class def should have been inside main(). Sorry about that. Nick
