I am trying to connect java application with mysql.
Earlier mysql was installed on a remote machine and the connection was working fine. But now i was testing it by installing it on the local machine. So changed the host name from name of server to localhost and specified user name and password for local mysql database.
But now i can't conenct to the local databse.
i am getting the following Error

Access denied to user abc@127.0.0.1 (Using password:YES).

But i can directly run the database from prompt.

Please Help

Check exactly who you have granted login to and that abc@127.0.0.1 is one of them

i test this and it works fine on my localhost mysql: (using newest mysql driver 3.0.14)

  private static final String DB_URL = "jdbc:mysql://localhost/maq?user=root&password=password";

  private static Connection conn = null;

  public SQLConnectionTest() {

    try {
      Class.forName("com.mysql.jdbc.Driver").newInstance();
      conn = (Connection) DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:mysql://localhost/dbName?user=root&password=password";);
      if (!conn.isClosed()) {
        System.out.println("closing connection...");
      }
    } catch (Exception ex) {
      System.out.println("Connection failed: "+ ex.getMessage());
      ex.printStackTrace();
