hi,

my guess is that

throws a ClassNotFoundException


might be in your log, but it's only 1 line, easy to overlook.

Why not change it into


Good luck!

hi,

if the e.getMessage() does not give enough information, add the class of the exception


It will probably give you a ClassNotFoundException, here's how to solve it:

If you have a connection from Netbeans to your MySQL database, that does not mean that your application can connect to the MySQL database.
You will have to add the mysql driver (the .jar file that it's in) to your webapplication (just put the jar file the lib folder of your webapplication), or add that .jar file to the classpath of your server.
