The above is to connect to MySQL database. How about if I wanna connect to MS Access DB ? How should I change the above code and setting or configuration ? Where should I put the MS Access file ?

FYI, I m using Tomcat 5.0.11 !!

I was trying to change the Connect.java to

=================================
package com.wrox.library;
import javax.naming.*;
import javax.sql.*;
import java.sql.*;

public class Connect {

String stat = "Not Connected !!";

public void init() {
try {

Connection conn = null;
stat = " 1";
Class.forName("sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver");
stat = " 2";
conn = DriverManager.getConnection("jdbcdbc:;DRIVER=Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb);DBQ=FRONT.mdb","Admin","123456");
stat = " 3";


stat = " Got Connection "+conn.toString();
conn.close();


}
catch(ClassNotFoundException classnotfoundexception)
{
System.out.println("Could not find class: " + classnotfoundexception);
return;
}
catch(SQLException sqlexception)
{
System.out.println(sqlexception + "");
return;
}
catch(Exception e) {
e.printStackTrace();
}
}

public String getstat() {
return stat;
}
}
===========================================

but it stuck between stat = "2" and stat = " 3"

pls help !!

are you trying to do connection pooling for a db? There are other ways to do it also .

You can write your own connection pool or u can use the tutorial from java

Hope this helps
