This is an extreamly larget topic that you are asking about. It is hard to know what to tell you. First, any server style database engine should provide libraries for connecting to it and using the database services. Above you talk about Access, but access not only works with VB it also works with every other Microsoft technology like C# and J# and cpp. The trick is you have to know what library to use. If you have a particular database solution that you want to use, you should google for a matching connector or framework for allowing your application to "talk to" that database engine.

You can connect to an access database from Java and other non Microsoft technologies as well.
