Hi, I want to build a class connecting to ACCESS (I hate that tool) using odbc.  If I write it in a single class (in the main "function") I get no error, but If I put open_database, close database and browse database of putting all variable public instead of private.

I don't understand what is wrong with that class.  If somebody can help me, thank you!
this class is in the same file than other, could it be the problem ??? (I know in java, 1 class is 1 file) but not this time, lol

thank you.


import java.lang.*;
import java.net.URL;
import java.sql.*;

class connect_access
{
       private Connection dbConn = null;
      private Statement stmt;
    private ResultSet rs;

    connect_access(String query)
      {
          try
            {
                      Driver d = (Driver)Class.forName("sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver").newInstance();
                       String URL = "jdbc:odbc:" + "testdatabase";
                       dbConn = DriverManager.getConnection(URL, "Admin", "");
                       System.out.println("db Connected...\n");          
                       // Java SQL objects...       
                       stmt = dbConn.createStatement();
                       rs = stmt.executeQuery(query);
      
                       
          }
          catch (Exception e)
            {
                 System.out.println("Whoops! Something went wrong. \n");
                 e.printStackTrace();
            }
      }

    public String get_data(String column)
      {

something = rs.movenext() //<- here I get a unhandled exception type SQLException I know something is not declared, but was'nt my code
            return("");
      }

      public void disconnect_access()
      {
            System.out.println("BYE");
          dbConn.close();  //<------------------------------------------------------------ Here I get a unhandled exception type SQLException
          System.out.println("db connection closed.");
      }

}

Oops

Should be

 public void disconnect_access()
     {
      try
     {
        if(dbConn!=null)
        {
         dbConn.close();
          dbConn=null;
         }
         }
         catch(Exception ex)
        {
            dbConn=null;
         }  

     }


 public String get_data(String column)
     {
try
{
something = rs.movenext() //<- here I get a unhandled exception type SQLException I know something is not declared, but was'nt my code
}
catch(Exception ex)
{

}
     }

because Connection.close() and ResultSet.moveNext() throws SQLException objects

this function is not working, do you know how I can get this working ?

public String get_data(String column)
      {
          String a = "";
          try
            {
                a = rs.getString("Name");
               //<- here I get a unhandled exception type SQLException I know something is not declared, but was'nt my code
            }
            catch(Exception e)
            {
                 System.out.println("Whoops! Something went wrong. \n");
                 e.printStackTrace();
            }
            return(a);
      }
