I have a web application that was developed in JSP and the webservers Apache and Tomcat are loaded in Linux. The web application searches for a Access database. Now I need to create JDBC/ODBC connection from my Linux box to Windows 2003 server where my Access databsae is resided.

I am planning to deploy the website in my Linux box, every thing is good but I dnt know how to create ODBC connection.

I must use only MS Access database, somehow the end users are not interested in MySQL.

Is it possible?

please help,

This can be done with an ODBC-ODBC bridge from Easysoft. See http://www.unixodbc.org "Drivers".

Never tried that. Why don't give it a shot and let us know how well it works?

While it isn't free, the Easysoft stuff works really good and has very good performance.
