I am developing in Eclipse and using Struts 2 framework to build and deploy .war file to  http://www.coderanch.com/forums/f-63/JBoss JBoss. 4.2.3GA

There is an action class that I am using to insert a user into a database table - pretty simple stuff  http://cache-www.coderanch.com/images/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif  http://cache-www.coderanch.com/images/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif  

I get the following exception for executeUpdate() method. 

DEBUG com.opensymphony.xwork2.DefaultActionInvocation.debug:68 - Executing action method = execute 
[STDOUT] >>>>>>>>>>insert into catNav.USERS values('mm', 'pp', 88, 'mm.pp at yahoo.com (mailto:'mm.pp at yahoo.com)'); 
[STDOUT] java.sql.SQLException (http://docs.oracle.com/javase/7/docs/api/java/sql/SQLException.html): [Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver] Could not find file *'C:\java\jboss-4.2.3.GA\bin\catNav.mdb'*. 

*I am provide the full path to the database .mdb file but the exception is referring to file in jboss folder, which is does no exist.  I am struggling to find a solution to resolve this. * The path, using either \\ or / file separators is validated as an exception occurs if invalid path is defined.

The code is below; I have the same code in a standalone Java program that executes successfully (I verify row was added)  .... *but fails when running on JBoss*  :( 

 public String execute() throws Exception {
  //call Service class to store personBean's state in database
  final String dbName = "catNav";
  Connection con = null; // The connection to the database.
  Statement stmt = null;
  // The following code can throw errors, so they must be caught.
   // First, tell Java what driver to use and where to find it.
   // Next, create a connection to your data source.
   // Specify that you are using the ODBC-JDBC Bridge.
   // And specify the data source name from ODBC.
   String database = 
             "jdbc:odbc:Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};DBQ=C:/Users/mp/Documents/Work/JDBC/catNav.mdb;";
   con = DriverManager.getConnection(database, "", "");
   /* also tried:
   con = DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:odbc:catNavDB");
   // Create an SQL statement.
   stmt = con.createStatement();
   // Execute some SQL to create a table in your database.
   // If the table already exists, an exception is thrown!
   String sqlSt = "insert into " + dbName +
     ".USERS " +
     "values('" + personBean.getFirstName() + "', " +  // FIRST_NAME
     "'" + personBean.getLastName() + "', " +          // LAST_NAME
     personBean.getAge() + ", " +                      // AGE
     "'" + personBean.getEmail() + "'); "  ;           // EMAIL
   // display SQL statment
   System.out.println (">>>>>>>>>>" + sqlSt );
   stmt.executeUpdate( sqlSt);  
   // Catch any exceptions that are thrown.
