I agree with David completely on the JDBC issue, but a word of warning
from someone who's been there. *Don't* think that you can do this with
Microsoft Access (not sure about other Microsoft products). Having spent
a month trying to persuade both Intersolv's and Microsoft's JDBC/ODBC bridges
to not blow up in my face after three queries into Access, I think I can
vouch for that not being a stable solution. I tried the same Java code
and same relational structure under Sybase and it worked just fine, however.
I'd stick with databases that support JDBC directly.
