Create DSN Name

  1. Go to control panel

    Connecting to access

  2. Go to Administrative tools

    Connecting to access

  3. Select Data Source(ODBC)

    Connecting to access

  4. Add new DSN name, select add

    Connecting to access

  5. Select Access driver from the list, click on finish

    Connecting to access

  6. Give a DSN name, click ok

    Connecting to access


NOTE: Here we are showing this example to create DSN in Window 7 os. For other operating system you need to do small changes.


Example

We suppose that you have created a student table with sid and name column name in access database.

import java.sql.*;
class Test
{
public static void main(String []args)
{
try{
Class.forName("sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver");
Connection con = DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:odbc:Test", "", "");
Statement s=con.createStatement();	//creating statement	

ResultSet rs=s.executeQuery("select * from student");	//executing statement	

while(rs.next()){
System.out.println(rs.getInt(1)+" "+rs.getString(2));
}

con.close();	//closing connection	

}catch(Exception e)
{
e.printStackTrace();
}
}
}
