The JSP Files (part 5): No Forwarding Address
Build dynamic, data-driven Web pages with JSP.

| The Scenic Route |

All working? Good. Now, let's use JSP to do exactly the same thing - fire a SELECT query at the database, and display the results in an HTML page.

<basefont face="Arial">
<%@ page language="java" import="java.sql.*" %>

// define variables
String UId;
String FName;
String LName;

// define database parameters
String host="localhost";
String user="us867";
String pass="jsf84d";
String db="db876";
String conn;

<table border="2" cellspacing="2" cellpadding="5">

<td><b>First name</b></td>
<td><b>Last name</b></td>



// create connection string
conn = "jdbc:mysql://" + host + "/" + db + "?user=" + user + "&password=" +

// pass database parameters to JDBC driver
Connection Conn = DriverManager.getConnection(conn);

// query statement
Statement SQLStatement = Conn.createStatement();

// generate query
String Query = "SELECT uid, fname, lname FROM abook";

// get result
ResultSet SQLResult = SQLStatement.executeQuery(Query);

UId = SQLResult.getString("uid");
FName = SQLResult.getString("fname");
LName = SQLResult.getString("lname");

out.println("<tr><td>" + UId + "</td><td>" + FName + "</td><td>" + LName
+ "</td></tr>");

// close connection



And you'll see something like this:

''.preg_replace(array('/  /', '/ /'), array('  ', '   '), '
Owner First name Last name
john Bugs Bunny
john Elmer Fudd
joe Peter Parker
bill Clark Kent
