jsp login using a access database

I am using NetBeans IDE 5.5.1 and I have a Login.jsp and a access database. How do i create a login from my jsp page that reads from my database?
                <input type="text" name="ID" id="ID" />
                <p>ID &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;
        <input type="password" name="Occupation" id="Occupation" />
  <input name="Login" type="button" id="Login" value="Login" />

Netbeans has good online documentation.  This page:
walks you through the steps to create a form-based login for Tomcat (or Sun's Web app server).

You don't have to use the mechanism that comes with Tomcat, however.  You could  create a form and have users log in.  Then you could write your own code to keep the pages secure from non-logged in Web site visitors.  It's easier to use a login package, like the one that comes with Tomcat, but you don't have to.

If you are asking how to make a query to an Access db from a JSP, here is a simple example:

Connection con = null;
Statement stmt = null;
ResultSet rs = null;

      Class.forName( "sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver" );
      con = DriverManager.getConnection( "jdbc:odbc:MyDbName", dbUser, dbPassword );
      stmt = con.createStatement( );

      rs = stmt.executeQuery("Select Id, Field1 from Table 1");
      while( rs.next() ) {
            int recId = rs.getInt("Id");
            String field1 = rs.getString("Field1");
catch( SQLException e ) {

This uses the JDBC-ODBC driver to access your Access db.  You have to have an ODBC connection defined for your Access db (as a System DSN), which in this example is named MyDbName.  Access dbs often don't have usernames and passwords.  If you don't, you can leave off the dbUser and dbPassword parameters to the getConnection call.
rose india does a nice app for you, if you replace the code in the checkValidUser to do a sql select on your DB it will work a treat:


ResultSet rs = stmt.executeQuery("select name * from userTable where userId ='1'");

if(rs = null)
           user does not exist
      user exists
