try this:

change this line:   ResultSet rs=stmt.executeQuery( sq );

to:
stmt = c.prepareStatement(sq);
ResultSet rs = stmt.executeQuery();

public static void main(String args[])
{
try
{

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


Connection c=DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:odbc:shilpi","scott","tiger");

System.out.println("got connection");

Statement stmt=c.createStatement();

String sq="select fname,ssn from empl";

//stmt.executeUpdate(sq);


ResultSet rs=stmt.executeQuery(sq);
System.out.println("hi");

while(rs.next())
{
System.out.println(rs.getString("fname") +" " +rs.getString("ssn"));
}
rs.close();
stmt.close();
c.close();
}
catch(ClassNotFoundException e1)
{}
catch(SQLException e2)

Print the exceptions to see if any error has occurred

e.printStackTrace()

shilpi84Author Commented:
no hoomanv ... i by mistake input some chars right after the empl table name...
i made this mistake just this time...

String sq="insert into empl values('d2','73141')";
stmt.executeUpdate(sq);
sq="select fname,ssn from employee";
...
 i was using different table names

i recompiled the original program and its now running
