SO Im new to both mac programming and database access via java programs. Im trying to write a program that uses a .mdb database using xcode but am not able to load the driver apparently. The following: Class.forName("sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver"); is leading to a ClassNotFoundException that stops the program. This is probably a pretty lame question, but I cant figure it out (can you get banned for insulting yourself?). Any help with how to this would be great, Thanks.
