Hello! I want to manipulate some Microsoft Access files (2007-2010) from my java program to read and write. The problem is that I don't know the libraries or the correct keywords to search because it take me to other examples I don't want. Can someone pass me a link for a tutorial or explain briefly something? I know it uses javax.sql library (I'm not sure) but ignore if all the comands work with Microsoft Access. Thanks for your advices.

As with any other database, you'd use JDBC.

While JDBC is nice and standardized, there are other ways to interact with Access, like Jackcess. So it depends a bit on your circumstances.

I have been reading and find that it's a little complex to use access from java, and may require more memory because the use of many libraries and platforms, are there any other kind of files to manage information? Similar to access or excel or the common databases used with java?

It isn't any more complex to use Access than to use any other database from Java. And I don't know what you mean by "more memory" -- what alternative were you comparing it to?
