I'm working at the moment with a Apache Derby Database. Now I got some problems.. How can I give my ODBC the information for the Derby database?? Or does somebody know some good tutorials?



A few pointers on the basics of ODBC

It is a client side connectivity (ie it runs on the PC that connects to the server). There are three components:

1. The ODBC driver - provided by the vendor of the data source.

2. The ODBC data source - this is a named setting for a database connection. with specific settings for the data source - exact requirements will depend on the driver.
eg: IP address of server, login ID/password, file on disk if its file based etc.

3. The ODBC administrator (odbcad32.exe) which lets you set up, amend and delete ODBC data sources.

Your app then connects through the ODBC to the data source to access the data.

Far more detail about ODBC and setting it up at my introduction to ODBC at http://www.jrbarnett.freeserve.co.uk/freestuff.htm
