Welcome to JavaRanch.

Next time you post code of any length, please UseCodeTags. The code is unnecessarily hard to read as it is.

It is probably much easier to track down the problem if you write a standalone application that reads the Excel file. Then once that works, you can embed the code in the web app.

Welcome to JavaRanch!

That code wouldn't compile. It is not legal Java to have a loose try/catch block. It needs to be in a method (or static block.) Since it is accessing a database, maybe you want to make the the main method.
