I want to get all the name of table after successfully connected to any database. Like

Class.forName("sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver");
conn = DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc dbc:JdbcTest");

*****DatabaseMetaData dbmd = conn.getMetaData();
*****String[] tables = dbmd.getTableNames();

I there any way to get an array of all tables from DatabaseMetaData object.

Thanks
