I want to use Java and JDBC with a Microsoft Access database. Do I have to use the JDBC-ODBC bridge? Is there a faster JDBC bridge for Access? Is it free or does it cost? Also must I create an ODBC datasource in Control Panel to make the Java-Access connection? If I do is there a way to create the ODBC datasource through Java code inside a Java applicaton so that users do not have to create the ODBC datasource themselves?
