I am running a jsp page on this URL:
There is no database support available in website.
I want my form data to be posted on another site:
In the site I have support for both JSP and mySQL.
If this scenario is possieble then what will be the jsp connectivity script for the following:
String username = "abc_mysql_database_username";
String password = "abc_mysql_database_password";
String url= "jdbc:mysql://localhost:3356/events";
In place of localhost what to give. "events" is the name of the database.

That would be "jdbc:mysql://". But no responsible hosting provider would let their firewall expose the database to the outside world like that. Try, but don't be surprised if you cannot get a connection.
What you can do is, on, expose your database functionality as some sort of service accessible over HTTP. This can be RMI tunneled over HTTP, an XML-RPC service, a Web service, or some other HTTP-based service of your own design. You will have to think through the security implications of this, though, especially if you don't have SSL/TLS (HTTPS) support.

Just using HTTP GET or HTTP POST will be sufficient for you. You can use hidden form variables for your data. On submit() click of your form, redirect to the url you want to post the data.
