    How do you connect to a MySql Database using JDBC?

    Recently some newbie asked me a simple question of connecting to MySql database using JDBC.Here is a code snippet for that.The important thing here is to ensure that you have added MySql database driver classes(mysql.jar) in your classpath. Here goes the code snippet:
    import java.sql.*;
    
    public class MySqlConnect {
    
    
    public static void main (String[] args)
    {
    Connection connection = null;
    
    try
    {
    String userName = "root";
    String password = "bunty";
    String url = "jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/systdb";
    
    Class.forName ("com.mysql.jdbc.Driver").newInstance ();
    
    connection = DriverManager.getConnection (url, userName, password);
    System.out.println ("Database connection established");
    }
    catch (Exception e)
    {
    System.err.println ("Connection to database server cannot be establish");
    }
    finally
    {
    if (connection != null)
    {
    try
    {
    connection.close ();
    System.out.println ("Database connection terminated");
    }
    catch (Exception e) { System.out.println ("These connection errors can be ignored."); }
    }
    }
    }
    }
