    Default Connecting to local access database

    I was going through a book and it has a statement that reads

    static final String DATABASE_URL = "jdbc:mysql://localhost/books".

    This is for connecting to a local mysql database called books.

    What would I use for a simmilar access database which is on my C:.

    Please help.

    I don't know, but this link seems to be the go-to page for everyone else who has ever asked the question. Consider installing and using MySQL. While it can be used for enterprise projects, it also works just fine on quite low-powered desktop PCs.
