try
url = "jdbc:odbc:MS Access Database;DBQ=db\\form.mdb"

But I don't think this will work for jsp because the current directory is the directory where server is started. not you jsp directory. you'll need to use application.getRealPath( "db\\form.mdb" ) to the the full path. So it should be:

String url = "jdbc:odbc:MS Access Database;DBQ=" + application.getRealPath( "db\\form.mdb" )

Hi.
if you create a system DSN object to your Database you can use this:

        try
        {
            Class.forName("sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver");
            connection = DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:odbc:[DSN Name]", "", "");
            statement = connection.createStatement();
        }
        catch(ClassNotFoundException classnotfoundexception)
        {
            System.err.println("Cannot find the database driver classes.");
            System.err.println(classnotfoundexception);
        }
        catch(SQLException sqlexception)
        {
            System.err.println("Cannot connect to this database.");
            System.err.println(sqlexception);
        }

regards
Javier
