Creating Connections with DataSource Class

This section describes how to create connection objects with the DataSource class.

It is recommended now that connection objects are created by the DataSource implementation class, sun.jdbc.odbc.ee.DataSource. Here is a sample program that creates a connection object using the DataSource class without using JNDI services:

/* OdbcAccessDataSource.java
 - Copyright (c) 2015, HerongYang.com, All Rights Reserved.
 */
import java.sql.*;
public class OdbcAccessDataSource {
  public static void main(String [] args) {
    Connection con = null;
    try {

// Setting up the DataSource object
      sun.jdbc.odbc.ee.DataSource ds 
        = new sun.jdbc.odbc.ee.DataSource();
      ds.setDatabaseName("HY_ACCESS");

// Getting a connection object
      con = ds.getConnection();

// Getting database info
      DatabaseMetaData meta = con.getMetaData();
      System.out.println("Server name: " 
        + meta.getDatabaseProductName());
      System.out.println("Server version: "
        + meta.getDatabaseProductVersion());

// Closing the connection
      con.close();
    } catch (Exception e) {
      System.err.println("Exception: "+e.getMessage());
    }
  }
}

The output confirms that I got a good connection with the DataSource implementation class. But I also got 2 warnings that implementation class is Sun's experimenting implementation. It could be removed in the future.
