I have developed an application which was using Access as database. Now i want to run my application on Linux. Is it possible to use the same Access database.

you have several choices.

one option is to configure an ODBC connection for the linux app to the windows machine with the access database (yes, ODBC is availble on Linux).

another option is to move the access database into another database tool, such as PostgreSQL or MySQL.

another option, which is really ugly, is to try to maintain a consistent copy of the access database in some other linux database, such as MySQL or PostgreSQL.
