  • MySQL Database or WAMP Server or XAMPP Server
  • Netbeans IDE

The first step is to go to phpMyAdmin, click on the SQL tab, execute the following command,

The second step is to, select the database, execute the following command,

The third step is to create a table, execute the following command,

The fourth step is to create a project inside the Netbeans IDE,

File-> New project-> Java-> Java application, Give a name to your application and click finish

The fifth step is to create a class inside the project and write the following code

The sixth step is to add MySQL-connector jar to the project/library

The seventh step is to create JFrame form, inside the project,

At last call, the connectdb() inside the constructor so that as soon as the application runs/constructor is created, conn object will be initialized.

So at this point, if we run the application we will get the blank JFrame form and an alert message saying that connection has been established.
