Hi Lee,
Insert the following line -
Statement stmt = con.createStatement ();
stmt.executeUpdate("INSERT INTO PEOPLE (PRI,LOGIN_TYPE) VALUES ('2123','234')");

Also change the above line as follows:
int i = stmt.executeUpdate("INSERT INTO PEOPLE (PRI,LOGIN_TYPE) VALUES ('2123','234')");

Hope this helps !!
