for all this to work u will have to

import java.sql.*;

before ur class definition starts.


try {

Class.forName("sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver");


Connection con = DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:odbc:myDSN","username","password");

Statement stmt = con.createStatement();

ResultSet rs = stmt.executeQuery("SELECT * FROM MyTable");

/*
FOR update or insert or delete queries change the above line to the following
int flag = stmt.executeUpdate("INSERT INTO MyTable VALUES (1, 'Username', 'MyName')");

*/

while(rs.next()) {

//id, username and firstname are fields in the table where
// id is numeric and the other two are text

System.out.println(rs.getInt("id"));
System.out.println(rs.getString("username"));
System.out.println(rs.getString("firstname"))

}

rs.close();
stmt.close();
con.close();
} catch (SQLException sqle) {
sqle.printStackTrace();
} catch(Exception e) {
e.printStackTrace();
}
