    You don't want to.

    MSAccess is not running as a server on the win machine: the machine might not be up all the time....

    Anyway you would need to have the right url / system dsn in the jdbcodbc driver. I do not know if the driver supports the javax.sql.DataSource ....

    So there is enough against you right from the start.

    Can you upsize your MSAccess to MSSQL on a win server ? (or any other DB on a server with the right driver from your target?... could be MYSQL)
