I placed an Ms Access database (aaa.mdb) in Linux and tried to access it using Java but to no avail. it came out nullpointerexception in the statement Class.forName("sun.org.....").
Is it possible to access it and do i need a special driver?

AFAIK MS Access should be there to open and manipulate the data in mdb file
Therefore a windows platform is needed

what u tried to say is that it won't work if the mdb is placed inside Linux platform ??I know it will work in windows as i managed to access it even without the need to install ms access program. but can it work in Linux?
