i wanna ask another thing i have created an applet which has one main file and 7 other class files now i want to connect it to database the following code is in class file on compiling it gives access control exception...

private boolean spellCheck(String spell)
{
Connection Conn;
Statement Stat;
ResultSet Rs;
String match;
Boolean retCode;
try
{
Class.forName("sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbc");
Conn = DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:odbc:Vocabulary");
Stat = Conn.createStatement();
String que = "Select * From Scrabble WHERE id = "+ spell;
Rs = Stat.executeQuery(que);
match = Rs.getString(1);
if(match != null)
retCode=true;
}
catch(SQLException e)
{}
catch(ClassNotFoundException cnfe)
{}
return retCode;
}

i have edit the policy file with this code

grant
{
permission java.lang.RuntimePermission
"accessClassInPackage.sun.jdbc.odbc";
};

grant 
{
permission java.lang.RuntimePermission
"accessClassInPackage.sun.jdbc.odbc";
permission java.util.PropertyPermission
"file.encoding", "read";
};

bt still its not working and gives same access control exception

Please post the full text of the error message.

@NormR1 that is unlikely to happen as that fool omitted any reporting in catch statements.

Shaaani, put printStackTrace() in your your catch blocks then you would know what is wrong
