Hi i'm sort of new to jdbc programming.. i was just trying to test how to connect to a db. I have created a db in access. The url i specify is jdbc dbc:MyDatabasename and i'm using the sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcBridge driver. When i run the program it says that failed to load the driver and could not find the database source..
now i'm thinking the jdbc driver is alredy with the sun's jdk so do i have to still add something to my class path, thats what i think the problem can be..
secondly i'm planning to use oracle 9i for later tests.. so what is the oracle driver that i can use to connect to the jdbc.. can anybody tell me what the name of the driver is and if i need to download it and if yes which site can i use to do that...

it sounds like you didn't register your database as an ODBC datasource in the control panel. When using the jdbc dbc bridge, this is a necessary step in locating the database.
When you move to Oracle ( hopefully sooner than later ), you'll probably use one of these drivers
