Writing to Access Databases

We are thinking about connecting to an Access database for one of our interfaces.  Here is some PeopleCode that I threw together to make sure that it was possible.

I tested the code in a VMWare instance with HCM8.9/Tools 8.46, Windows Server 2003.  The instance did not have Microsoft Access installed, and I changed the path (c:\temp\AccessTest.mdb below) to a network (UNC) path where the computer had Access installed.

Local JavaObject &class;
Local JavaObject &connection;
Local JavaObject &driverManager;
Local JavaObject &statement;

&class = GetJavaClass("java.lang.Class");

&driverManager = GetJavaClass("java.sql.DriverManager");
&connection = &driverManager.getConnection("jdbc:odbc:Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};DBQ=c:\temp\AccessTest.mdb;DriverID=22;READONLY=false");
&statement = &connection.createStatement();
&statement.executeUpdate("insert into tblTest(TestMessage) values ('testing')");

Hope it helps.
