    Default Need help connecting to database on website!!!!

    Hi there

    I am doing a school project and have decided to make a database which i can store user info and car info (its a car auction program)

    But i am having trouble with the connection to the database... we have been told to use jdbc odbc connection so is there a way to use this method to connect to my database?

    this is my connection code when connecting to the database locally:

    con = DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:odbc:DRIVER={Mic rosoft Access Driver (*.mdb, *.accdb)};DBQ=CarDealership.accdb");

    i omitted the other code because it is pretty standard code to do this connection.

    But now i want to connect to a database of the same name on this site:

    what must i change in my code to be able to connect to the database on the internet????

    please please plssssssss help me really want to get this to work

    thanks and regards

    Is that database accessible from the outside world?
    Considering it's an Access one I would expect the answer to be "no".
    Even if it were a MySQL one, exposing your database directly to the web is a Bad Thing. You would normally have some other app in between that hid the database fromn direct access, eg a Java webapp.
