Greetings all,

I am evaluating Eclipse for use in my organization. I need to use multiple data sources, including MS Access. I cannot find any information on how to use Microsoft Access via the IDE, just how to do it via code. I understand there is a JDBC-ODBC bridge that is apparently bundled with Eclipse, but I don't know how to add the driver so that I can select it when adding a new data source, or if this is even the way to go about it. I have virtually no experience, with Eclipse, Java, or Tomcat, so I really need some thorough information as to where to click, what to type, etc. Any help will be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

There's a separate forum for Eclipse data tools where you might get more
and better help with this.

Thanks for your reply! I don't see an data tools forum. I do see a BIRT forum which I guess might be more appropriate. I just figured this was a total newb question.

I don't want to cross post, do you know how I can delete this post?

No, it's not that forum. The NNTP name is eclipse.dtp.
