How to convert ADO Database objects to Jabaco

I am new to Jabaco, I write programs in VB using ADO database objects. What is the best way to convert them to a format that Jabaco can use?

I got a feeling that this will be a popular topic to discuss as many business applications use the ADO database objects. I searched for "ADO" but found no hits on the Community Forum or Wiki. So I guess this would be the first post on it.

I assume that I'll have to use some Java database connector instead, am I right? If so, which one, and how to do it with an MS-Access or MS-SQL Server database. I want my application to be scalable and be able to use databases like MySQL, PostgreSQL, Firebird, Oracle, etc as well later.

Hello ngking,
welcome at Jabaco.

I am not so familiar with ADO, but so far I know is ADO a COM object. In the COM list I found the modules msado15.dll (ADODB), msadomd.dll (ADOMD) and msadox.dll (ADOX). My suggestion: One way to realize a solution to use ADO with Jabaco is to use the Java-COM-Bridge (JaCoB). Here is a example for Word® and all links you need.

With JDBC you are right. For MS-SQL-Server you find a JDBC driver here and here is an older list with a lot of JDBC drivers. I do not know a JDBC driver for Access®, I use JDBC-ODBC-Bridge, you find an example here.

Hope it helps.
