I need to work with a access database file. I know how to do that in
java code. But I would like to use the eclipse data tools to write/test
some queries against the database. What I did so far:

- Set up a odbc connection in Windows that uses the ms access driver and
points to the database file (the data source I use from java code)

- created a new Driver Definition and called it "ODBC JDBC driver". This
driver definition points to the jre/rt.jar and uses the

- created a connection using the new Driver Definition, pointing to the
odbc source.

When I press "test connection" I get a "Ping suceeded!" message

Ok. Database created.

But when I actually "connect" to the database I get an empty "Schemas"
folder and nothing else :(

Where is the mistake? How can I work with access database?
