...Hi, this is a part of the database code, surprisingly data is not being entered into database.if i would take out the if else statement, then the data gets inserted,


String connectionURL = "jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/mydatabase?user=;password=";
Connection connection = null;
Statement statement = null;
PreparedStatement prep1,prep2,prep3;
prep1=null;
prep2=null;

ResultSet rs = null;
String username="";

       String myquery="select * from account where username='"+vol.getUsername()+"'";
       rs=statement.executeQuery(myquery);

       boolean anyRecords=rs.next();

 

   if(rs.getString("username").equals(vol.getUsername()))
           {

it seems like the first if works fine but not the else statement, i guess i nneed to put
the not equal sign in java,

i mean if it is equal , it is like

if(rs.getString("username").equals(vol.getUsername()))

can it be because i need to put not equal, if yes, how is it,

Hi!

Your else block will never run! You select records with username=<value> and then compare the username with <value> in if statement. Of course they will be equal!

If you want to find out if the requested record is present in the database do something like this:

      String myquery="select * from account where username='"+vol.getUsername()+"'";
       rs=statement.executeQuery(myquery);
       if (rs.next()) {

       } else {
     
       }

In this case your else block will work if the user is not found in the database.

Regards!

For information:

The opposite of:

    if (myString.equals("Some text"))

is:

    if (!myString.equals("Some text"))

Notice the ! before myString ;-)
