Compare Values JTextField against a field in a MySQL Database

Hi Gents,

Does anyone out there please provide some help or a link to where I can find a way to compare an integer that I have typed into a JTextfield against a field in a MySQL database?

For example if I type 4 into the textbox, I can compare this value to the database field and take action accordingly

I can find absolutly nothing on the net about this.

Any help or links is greatly appreciated.

I need to do the same for strings as well. I just need some links/examples to get me started

There's two steps.

(1) Get the number from the JTextField.

(2) Compare it to the database field.

Are you having trouble with both of those?

Hi Paul,

I am sure I can get the value of the textField but using the getText method, I am ok there.

Is the compare part that I am not sure about
