try modifying it to this.. and see what gets printed:

<%@ page import="java.sql.*" %>

<%
Class.forName("org.gjt.mm.mysql.Driver");
         
Connection conn = DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:mysql://SERVER1:3306/DB", "UN", "PW");
%>
Got Connection<br>
<%          
PreparedStatement stmt1 = conn.prepareStatement("select FirstName, LastName from tblPeople");
ResultSet rs = stmt1.executeQuery();
%>
Got Resultset<br>
Printing Resultset:<br>
<%
while (rs.next())
{
rs.getString(1);
rs.getString(2);
}
%>
Done with Resultset<br>
Closing up<br>
<%
rs.close();
conn.close();
%>
Done.


Could you try that and tell me what gets displayed.

Also make sure that tblPeople has data in it.

I wonder if you can use prepared statement at all with 2.0.4

replace:
<%          
PreparedStatement stmt1 = conn.prepareStatement("select FirstName, LastName from tblPeople");
ResultSet rs = stmt1.executeQuery();
%>
with:
<%          
Statement stmt = conn.createStatement();
Resultset rs = stmt.executeQuery("select FirstName, LastName from tblPeople");
%>

See if that changes anything.

I think if you want to use Prepared Statements you may have to get the latest mysql jdbc driver from here:
http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=15923&release_id=72107

version 2.0.11 supports a lot more (including prepared statements)

Scratch all that.. the reason why its not printing is b/c we are not making it print :-)

This will work :-)


<%@ page import="java.sql.*" %>

<%
Class.forName("org.gjt.mm.mysql.Driver");
       
Connection conn = DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:mysql://SERVER1:3306/DB", "UN", "PW");
%>
Got Connection<br>
<%          
PreparedStatement stmt1 = conn.prepareStatement("select FirstName, LastName from tblPeople");
ResultSet rs = stmt1.executeQuery();
%>
Got Resultset<br>
Printing Resultset:<br>
<%
while (rs.next()) {
%>
<%=rs.getString(1);%>
<%=rs.getString(2);%>
<%
}
%>
Done with Resultset<br>
Closing up<br>
<%
rs.close();
conn.close();
%>
Done.

cheekyci,

I changed rs.getString(1); to

out.println(rs.getString("FirstName"));

looks like everything works now.

Thanks.
