    I dont think it is possible to have a DSN-less connection to Access DB in
    java. First, Access does not run and listen for remote connections. Also
    the JDBC-ODBC bridge does not support remote access to DB. So if you have
    a program that is running on a remote host, or on Linux, Unix, you won't
    be able to connect to the remote MS-Access database. If you have a solution
    please let me know.

    I don't think the original question was about databases in a remote
    computer. It was about databases that are not registered as an ODBC data
    source. And of course there is a way to connect to these databases: use a
    driver that doesn't go via ODBC.
