How to access databases in Java 1.0.2

I've been reading up on database access and was about to create a simple sample for myself. I wanted to access an Interbase database and placed the import java.sql.* statement only to find out that is wasn't found. Further reading told me that the java.sql package doesn't exist in Java 1.0.2.

Is this correct? Can anyone show me a quick and dirty example on how to connect to a database? (Preferably Interbase, Access, or Paradox).

WIlling to raise points.Thanks in advance.

No need to raise the points.

Your problem arises from the fact that JDBC is not integrated in JDK 1.02 but has to be downloaded seperatley.
