First of all, the variable is called rowset, not rowSet

Second of all, don't do it this way! Whenever using JDBC, you should do the following:

If you are trying to connect to a access database named challenge, then why are you using the mysql driver and connecting to books?

You can make it easier for yourself by using

instead of

That way you'll cover the ResultSet, Statement and other related classes as well.

The errors about DriverManager, Statement and ResultSet were because you didn't import them; Ulf's suggestion should solve that.

As for the rs part, you forgot it in your code:

static final String DRIVER = "com,mysql.jdbc.Driver";
static final String DATABASE_URL = "jdbc:mysql://localhost/db challenge.mdb";



This isn't going to work... The mysql driver will not work for access. You need to get an access driver from Microsoft -- or use the JDBC/ODBC bridge. As for the format of the URL, there is no standard -- you have to use the format as defined for the driver that you using. Using the mysql format isn't going to work for the access driver, once you install it.

You can use the following:
Driver = "sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver"
Database URL = "jdbc: odbc: DRIVER={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};DBQ=" followed by the filename. (Remove the spaces before odbc and DRIVER; I HATE these smileys!)
