Problem connecting to Access

Hi,

I am trying to connect to Access using the following code (IntegratorDB is already there in system DSN):



It's running fine until the line conn.setTransactionIsolation() is reached and throws an SQLException on this line. Here is the stack trace:

java.sql.SQLException: [Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver]Optional feature not implemented
at sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbc.createSQLException(JdbcOdbc.java:6957)
at sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbc.standardError(JdbcOdbc.java:7114)
at sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbc.SQLSetConnectOption(JdbcOdbc.java:5114)
at sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcConnection.setTransactionIsolation(JdbcOdbcConnection.java:944)
at net.ibs.framework.lang.ext.Test.main(Test.java:21)

I have a limited knowledge on JDBC and don't know why this is happening, any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

The driver doesn't support this optional feature. That's all.

That said, you're using the worst of the both worlds (MS Access as database and ODBC bridge driver as JDBC driver). I recommend replacing both to better choices. If the sole purpose is to have an embedded database, look for JavaDB or consorts. Else just use a real RDBMS like MySQL and consorts. Those databases ships with a decent JDBC driver.

Thanks for the prompt response.

I have my limitations though, I cannot change anything and just have to make this work. Is it not possible?

Thanks.

Don't make use of this optional feature then.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
