    Question Java code and connection with Ms Access 2013

    Hi guys
    I have a code that i used to connect to Ms access 2003 and 2007 in Windows Xp. It worked very fine, but it would not work in windows 7 for access 2013. Am wondering if there is a problem with the JDBC driver being supported by Windows 7.

    import java.sql.*;

    public class AccessConnection {

    public static void main(String [] args){



    String file =" C:/Users/JOSEMARIA/Documents/Progarmming/JAVA_CODES/Library";
    String dbase = "jdbcdbcriver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb,*.accdb)};DBQ="+file+".accdb;";

    System.out.println("About to run database connection");
    Connection conn = DriverManager.getConnection(dbase, "", "");

    System.out.println("Database initialization and connection done");

    catch (ClassNotFoundException | SQLException es){
    System.out.println("Unable to connect to database");

    It gives me the errors shown below:

    Unable to connect to database
    java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver
