when i try to access sql server database i get the following error. I think the problem is in the syntax....can anybody please let me know about this!!
Here's part of the code:
import java.sql.*;
import java.io.*;
import javax.servlet.*;
import javax.servlet.http.*;
public class DbTest extends HttpServlet {
public void doGet(HttpServletRequest req, HttpServletResponse resp)
throws IOException, ServletException {
// First, set things up.
// JDBC driver.
String dbDriverName = "sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver";
// Connection URL.
//String dbConnectionURL = "jdbc dbc ractice";
//use this for remote access!!
String dbConnectionURL="jdbc dbc:;DRIVER={SQL SERVER};SERVER=(http://info2.graphiced.com:1433);DATABASE=Northwind;UID=guest;PID=guest" ;

// Connection object.
Connection dbConnection = null;
// Statement object.
Statement dbStatement = null;
// SQL statement to execute.
String sqlStatement = "Select * from ORDERS";
// Result set object.
ResultSet dbResultSet = null;
// Start the servlet output.
PrintWriter out = resp.getWriter();
out.println("<html><head><title>DB Test</title></head><body>");
out.println("<h1>Database Test</h1>");
// Start the db access code.
try {
// Create JDBC driver instance.
// Create db connection.
dbConnection = DriverManager.getConnection(dbConnectionURL);
// Create Statement object.
dbStatement = dbConnection.createStatement();
// Execute the query.
dbResultSet = dbStatement.executeQuery(sqlStatement);
// Print column headers.
ResultSetMetaData rsMetaData = dbResultSet.getMetaData();
int colCount = rsMetaData.getColumnCount();
// Displays the results in a table.
// Start the table.

and here's the error:

The exception looks to be saying that your JDBC URL is not valid. To use the JDBC-ODBC bridge, you need to register the ODBC datasource. Start up ODBCAD32 (in the control panel, or in the system32 folder) and set up a system DSN so that mySQLServer points to northwind (or whatever).
Then use a URL like jdbc:odbc:mySQLServer, and pass the username and password to the getConnection statement.
