Getting invalid handle exception for the following code:
private PreparedStatementseleStmt;

private ResultSet rsUserID= null;
String sele = "SELECT * FROM UserData WHERE userID=?";

seleStmt.setString(1, userID);

rsUserID = seleStmt.executeQuery();
System.out.println("execute query OK");

you need to add the following statement
seleStmt = connection.prepareStatement(sele);
The SQL statement has to be stored in a PreparedStatement object.
