Thank u both for ur replies. Manav, can u please explain me in detail about accessing the Access database with Java applet(in view of Geocities webpage)? Do u want me to use LiveConnect or simply calling an applet from HTML and accessing the database with JDBC? Do u think Geocities support JDBC driver?
"manav k", The Java Ranch has thousands of visitors every week, many with surprisingly similar names. To avoid confusion we have a naming convention, described at http://www.javaranch.com/name.jsp . We require names to have at least two words, separated by a space, and strongly recommend that you use your full real name. Please log in with a new name which meets the requirements. Thanks
Kiran there are a couple of ways to appraoch your problem 1) Move to a different provider, geocities is not a place where you can do what you are trying to do it is more for basic web pages. go to this link, it lists out providers that support technologies like JSP, CGI and ASP which will make your life so much more simpler 2) Write out flat files using java applets, if your database is going to be simpler then you can simply use flat files (the recommended way of doing non complex database read/write). But if I were you I would leave geocities (which i did actually, i used to have a homepage there but due to these very limitations i moved out), because by going to a place like MyCGIserver.com etc not only will you get what you want, you will also learn a lot more. -manav
I searched a lot to change my web host geocities before. But I couldn't find this type of free web hosting supporting Servlets, JSP. Now I decided to change my host to one of them. Manav, can u please tell me which one is the best among those three. Which one r u using? Can u tell me any other good sites like this? Two of the three sites r supporting mySQL database. I don't know mySQL but I can learn for the purpose. So, I should select from the two. I would like to have ur advice. Thank you.

check this post out http://www.javaranch.com/ubb/Forum7/HTML/002841.html the type of data base shouldn't matter unless you have some data to migrate, if you are starting from scratch then as long as the DB supports SQL (mySQL has SQL which is slightly diff from SQL-92..the std most RDBMS's know) but most likely you will not have any problems didn't myCGIserver.com work?...i thought it supported Servlets and JDBC? -manav
I'm not sure if I approve of this interruption. But this tiny ad checks out:
