public class JDBCQuery extends Object
A trivial example of a database query performed with JDBC. The database being queried only exists locally on Windows'95; it the MS Access "Video Database" sample database. Note that you must select this as "System DSN" under the name "Video.Collection" (On '95 you do this from Settings->Control Panel->32Bit ODBC->System DSN) for this particular configuration of the demo to work. Other than this (see the URL below), the demo would work on any platform (UNIX, MS, Mac, Novell, etc.). We simply get a JDBC connection to the local Database server via ODBC, create a Statement from that, and a ResultSet with its Query set to a selection of three items from a database table, and print the results in a while loop as they come in from the database.
