First, your SQL INSERT statement doesn't use the correct syntax. Look here for a page which describes the correct syntax. (You didn't use parentheses.)

And for another thing, it's possible for evil users to uses that statement for "SQL Injection" attacks; humorous example here.
The cure for both of those problems is to use PreparedStatement; you should find that in any reputable JDBC tutorial.
