count command in sql using jsp

What is the format used for the count command using jsp.
This is what im using,

int cnt = stmt.execteQuery("SELECT count('"+id+"') FROM members ");

any suggestion of a good site that shows how to use mysql with jsp effectively.

                Statement st = con.createStatement();
int count=0;
          ResultSet res = st.executeQuery("SELECT count(id) FROM members ");
          if(res.next()){
                count = res.getInt(1);
          }
          out.println("the count: " + count);

That didnt work either if gave this error,

The server encountered an internal error () that prevented it from fulfilling this request.

Do you know of any sites that have sql and jsp tutorials?

ResultSet rs = stmt.execteQuery("SELECT count \("+id+"\) FROM members ");
int count = rs.getInt(1);

if you want to count all rows in a table just do

ResultSet rs = stmt.execteQuery("SELECT count \(*\) FROM members");
int count = rs.getInt(1);

jsp uses the exact same codes as java to do sql, as a matter of fact it is java.

so just search tutorial jdbc on www.google.com 
for sql tutorial go here: http://www.w3schools.com/sql/default.asp

 This is the code i am using. It would only work if i put it in braces. But the problem is now is that i cannot access count outside the braces.              

                Statement st = con.createStatement();
            ResultSet res = st.executeQuery("SELECT count(id) FROM members ");
            if(res.next()){
                  String count = res.getString(1);
            }
            out.println("the count: " + count);

This is the error i get when i try to access count outside the braces.

symbol  : variable count
location: class org.apache.jsp.admin_home_page_jsp
            out.println("the count: " + count);
                                                      ^

I have written a javascript. Its a form. I need to somehow connect to my sql database and then add all the information into sql tables. I would really appreciate if someone can help me with this part. I am writing the code of the form here just so you have an idea of what information my sql tables need to store. If you just copy paste this file as *.html it should work just to save u some time.Thank you very much for your time.
