Hi All

How to access data from excel sheet.

I have created a datasource and pointed that to excel sheet.

But when i try to access that i gives me error stating that it didnot find the name of excel sheet.

Here is my code:
import java.sql.Connection;
import java.sql.DriverManager;
import java.sql.ResultSet;
import java.sql.SQLException;
import java.sql.Statement;
import java.sql.Date;

public class TestExcelData {

public static Connection getConnection() throws Exception {
String driver = "sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver";
String url = "jdbc dbc:excelDB";
String username = "";
String password = "";
return DriverManager.getConnection(url, username, password);

public static void main(String args[]) {
Connection conn = null;
Statement stmt = null;
ResultSet rs = null;
try {
conn = getConnection();
stmt = conn.createStatement();
String excelQuery = "select * from Book1";
rs = stmt.executeQuery(excelQuery);

while (rs.next()) {
System.out.println(rs.getString("name") + " " + rs.getString("no"));

} catch (Exception e) {
} finally {
try {

} catch (SQLException e) {

my excel sheet name is book1.xsl it has two columns

name and no.

Take a look at Apache POI.
