    Is there any way to read standalone mdb files using java. i.e NOT
    connecting to the database via jdbc. i've searched this forum but found
    very old posts. Any pointers will be helpful.

    Realistically, getting at the data contained in an MDB file using another
    client such as Java or Visual Basic or .Net doesn't actually have anything
    to do with Access. You're going through Jet to get at the data, and while
    Jet is include as part of Access, it's really a separate component. I think
    you may have better luck asking on a Java forum.

    Hi.

    You can use the built-in JDBC classes, or you can write your own classes
    that automate an application that connects to an MDB file, or you can write
    your own database connectivity classes that use a JDBC-ODBC bridge driver to
    connect to the database.

    My advice is to use JDBC if Java is your programming language of choice.

    HTH.
