The Easysoft JDBC-Access Gateway provides JDBC access from Java applications, application servers and servlets to MDB or ACCDB files. If you configure your Java security policy to allow the Easysoft JDBC-Access Gateway to load its native component, the driver can also be used with Java applets.

Access has four components: a structure to hold data (tables), a way to manipulate that data, an environment to create a front end for the data (Design view of forms and reports) and tools that can run the front end (Data view of forms and reports). Access data is stored in a database file, which has the extension .mdb or .accdb.
The Easysoft JDBC-Access Gateway is a JDBC driver for Access that uses the Java Native Interface (JNI) to communicate with Microsoft's Access ODBC driver library. The Access ODBC driver is used to connect to the target database file.
The Access ODBC driver must be installed on the machine on which you install the Easysoft JDBC-Access Gateway. Since Windows 2000, the Access ODBC driver (one of the Jet Database Engine Components) has shipped with Windows and so should be already present on your machine as part of the Windows installation.
The target database file must be visible through the local file system on the Easysoft JDBC-Access Gateway machine. For example, in a folder on this machine or a mapped network drive or in a shared folder.
