You can get a good overview from Jdbc Tutorial to get started. It's that only the driver you should get to match your vendor. And we have a separate forum dedicated to JDBC related posts.

For Access, you need to use a JDBC-ODBC bridge. There's a number of examples on the web of this.

Can I recommend using real database software? I know its not relevant but many programmers find Access unusable as a real database system (flame bait I know).
