how to access a Microsoft Access database?

Hello,

I 've got an apache webserver.  It's just running fine, but now I've got an java-applet on one of the pages.  With this applet you can write data to a Microsoft Access Database.  The problem is I always got errors that it isn't possible.  How can I fix this?

It looks like more of a Java problem to me.  Unfortunately, I do not have much Java experience to narrow down the exact problem.  

When you said it used to be running fine - Are you referring to the same page + same applet?

What happened if you were to open the same page using a browser on the server machine itself?  
Do you (the webserver) have proper permission to write to the Access Database on the server.  Btw, what is the OS platform and Apache version that you are currently running?

---
To be honest - i really have no clue on what is the problem.  What I am trying to get here is to isolate on the possibilities of either the Apache (server) or the Apps (Java) is the problem. TIPS.  Perhaps, you might want to crosspost to Java Topic Area, maybe somebody there might have a clearer understanding.

cheers.

This is what I see in java-console:

java.security.policy: error adding Permission, java.util.PropertyPermission:
     java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: invalid actions mask

Ex2 = java.security.AccessControlException: access denied (java.util.PropertyPermission file.encoding read)

My error.log file from Apache is empty.  No errors there

Remember, the Java security manager will only allow connections back to the machine that served the applet (or so it has been in the past).  If your applet is attempting to communicate with any other host than the one that your browser downloaded the applet from, you will get security manager errors.

Hope this helps.
