Does any Experts have an example or documentation on how to connect to an Access DB using this product [aveConnect 1.1] ? It does not look like its supported any more but i have the JAR file. I know there is another company that has a similar product (I-Connect or something) but it is pretty pricy $$.

Essentially, I would like to connect to an MS Access DB through a Java Application without using ODBC.
Thanks.

Gary,
Thanks for the reply. the method they discuss in the above link uses an ODBC connection:
private String url   = "jdbc:odbc:Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};DBQ=MyCustomers.mdb";
which needs to be set up on the machine hosting the web server. the product aveConnect 1.1 is a pure Java JDBC that can connect to Access without the need for an ODBC connection. Unless I can find a product that is relatively inexpensive I'll probably need to use ODBC.

I have been to alot of websites and the product (StelsMDB) on this appears to have good potential. I'll download and test and report back. Thanks!
