In my current assignment I'm trying to connect a remote MS Access database using JPA. But I'm not able to connect to database in my desktop itself .

Below is my code let me know if I'm doing something wrong.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<persistence version="1.0" xmlns="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/persistence">
<persistence-unit name="hello-world" transaction-type="RESOURCE_LOCAL">
<provider>oracle.toplink.essentials.ejb.cmp3.Entit yManagerFactoryProvider</provider>
<property name="toplink.jdbc.user" value=""/>
<property name="toplink.jdbc.password" value=""/>
<property name="toplink.jdbc.url" value="jdbc:odbc:ds_userdsn"/>
<property name="toplink.jdbc.driver" value="sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver"/>
<property name="toplink.ddl-generation" value="create-tables"/>

package DaoLayer;

import javax.persistence.EntityManager;
import javax.persistence.EntityManagerFactory;
import javax.persistence.Persistence;

import Dao.UserDetails;

public class UserAuth {

public static void main(String[] args) {
String UserId="system1";
String password="t12121";
EntityManager em = null;
try {
EntityManagerFactory emf=Persistence.createEntityManagerFactory("hello-world");
em = emf.createEntityManager();
UserDetails us=new UserDetails();
if(em != null){



* ds_userdsn is the user dsn created

I'm getting the below error

[TopLink Info]: 2010.11.26 04:08:32.846--ServerSession(2773808)--TopLink, version: Oracle TopLink Essentials - 2.0.1 (Build b04-fcs (04/11/2008))

Can you connect TopLink to Access? Access is an odd choice.

If the Access database is set up as an ODBC data source then the JDBC/ODBC driver can connect to it.

That connection URL looks strange, though. I'd expect it to be in the format jdbc:odbc:DataSourceName. I'd suggest trying that.

(Edited to disable Smilies - does weird things to that URL!)

Hi all thanks for your quick replies. Hi Mathew the connection URL i have used is what you have mentioned above it got edited automatically while posting this thread.

However I have created a UserDSN named ds_userdsn of type Microsoft Access Driver(*mdb).

Please suggest if i'm doing something wrong here. I would appreciate if anybody can post here sample persistence.xml file required.
