Several problems with the previous comment.

1) You shouldn't override service() unless you really know what you are doing.  You should normally only override doPost() or doGet().  If you don't care which HTTP method will be used to open the page, have one of these call the other (as I have shown below)

2) You only want the database connection for this connection, so don't create it when the servlet is initialised (in the init() method), then destroy it when the servlet is unloaded (in the destroy() method).  Create it when you need it.  If the servlet grows in complexity (or expected hit frequency), you should consider using a connection pool.

3) class.forName should have been Class.forName

import java.io.*;
import java.sql.*;
import javax.servlet.*;
import javax.servlet.http.*;

public class DBServlet extends HttpServlet
{
    private Connection con;
    private PrintWriter out;


    public void doGet(HttpServletRequest req, HttpServletResponse res) throws ServletException, IOException
    {
        try
        {
            Class.forName("com.mysql.jdbc.Driver");
            con = DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/NomDeVotreBase", "VotreIdMySql", "VotreMdpMySql");
        }
        catch (Exception e)
        {
            System.out.println(e);
        }

        res.setContentType("text/html");
        try
        {
            out = res.getWriter();
            out.println("<html><head><title>");
            out.println("JDBC Servlet");
            out.println("</title></head><body>");

            Statement stmt = con.createStatement();
            ResultSet rs = stmt.executeQuery("SELECT * FROM essai");
            out.println("<UL>");

            while (rs.next())
            {
                out.println("<LI>" + rs.getString("nom"));
            }
            out.println("</UL>");
            rs.close();
            stmt.close();
        }
        catch (SQLException e)
        {
            log("Exception SQL" + e.toString());
        }

        out.println("</body></html>");
        out.close();

        try
        {
            con.close();
        }
        catch (SQLException e)
        {
            log("SQLException " + e.toString());
        }
    }


    public void doPost(HttpServletRequest req, HttpServletResponse res) throws ServletException, IOException
    {
        doGet(req, res);
    }
