Now if I need to connect to the run this java code from some other machine in network then how will I write the path "DBQ=C:/login.mdb"

You would have to place the "mdb" on a shared drive and provide the path to that shared drive/mdb.

Access is not a "remote access" capable DB. It is a file-based DB. If a machine cannot directly access the mdb file, they cannot access the Acess DB, and two people cannot access it with write access simultaneously.

Edit: If you mean that you are deploying both the app and the DB and simply want to be able to configure the "string" for the path to the url, then use a string var in that position and populate that string using Properties.
