In this tutorial you will learn how to get connection to a MySQL database.

Simple JDBC Example

To connect java application to the database we do the following fundamental steps

1. Load the driver of particular database you are using.

2. Create a Connection object to get a connection.

3. Create a statement object to for executing query.

4. Create a Resultset object to store the query.

5. Finally close the Connection, Statement and Resultset objects.

At first create table named student in MySQL database inset values into it as.

Creating A table

CREATE TABLE `student` (
`rollno` int(11) NOT NULL,
`name` varchar(50) default NULL,
`course` varchar(20) default NULL,
PRIMARY KEY (`rollno`)
)

Inserting Values

INSERT INTO STUDENT(rollno,name,course) VALUES(1,'John',B.Tech') ;

A Simple example is given below to connect a java application to MySQL database

MySQLConnect.java

import java.sql.Connection;
import java.sql.DriverManager;
import java.sql.ResultSet;
import java.sql.SQLException;
import java.sql.Statement;

public class MySQLConnect {
	public static void main(String[] args) throws SQLException {
		System.out.println("MySQL Connect Example.");
		Connection conn = null;
		Statement stmt = null;
		ResultSet rs = null;
		// 3306 is the default port number of MySQL
		String url = "jdbc:mysql://localhost/";
		String dbName = "student";
		String driver = "com.mysql.jdbc.Driver";
		String userName = "root";
		String password = "root";
		try {
			// Load the driver
			Class.forName(driver);
			// Get a connection
			conn = DriverManager
					.getConnection(url + dbName, userName, password);
			System.out.println("Connected to the database");
			// Create a Statement
			stmt = conn.createStatement();
			// Create a query String
			String query = "SELECT * FROM student";
			rs = stmt.executeQuery(query);
			while (rs.next()) {
				System.out.println("Roll No- " + rs.getInt("rollno")
						+ ", Student Name- " + rs.getString("name")
						+ ", Student Course " + rs.getString("course"));
			}
		} catch (ClassNotFoundException e) {
			System.out.println("Class Not found Exception cought");
			e.printStackTrace();
		} catch (SQLException e) {
			e.printStackTrace();
		} catch (Exception e) {
			e.printStackTrace();
		} finally {
			// Closing the connection
			conn.close();
			stmt.close();
			rs.close();
			System.out.println("Disconnected from database");
		}
	}
}

When you run this application it will display message as shown below:


Connected to the database
Roll No- 1, Student Name- John, Student Course B.Tech
Disconnected from database
