Hi,

import java.sql.*;

public class Mysqlconnect{
public static void main(String[] args) {
System.out.println("Table Creation Example!");
Connection con = null;
String url = "jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/";
String dbName = "employee";
String driverName = "com.mysql.jdbc.Driver";
String userName = "root";
String password = "root";
try{
Class.forName(driverName).newInstance();
con = DriverManager.getConnection(url+dbName, userName, password);
try{
Statement st = con.createStatement();
String table = "CREATE TABLE Employee11(Emp_code integer, Emp_name varchar(10))";
st.executeUpdate(table);
System.out.println("Table creation process successfully!");
}
catch(SQLException s){
System.out.println("Table all ready exists!");
}
con.close();
}
catch (Exception e){
e.printStackTrace();
}
}
}

I am getting this exception while running the above program ,i started database server and copied mysql-connector-java-5.1.15-bin.jar in jdk>lib and jre>lib>ext>

Remove it ! Your jars have nothing to do in there.

How are you executing your program ? From the command line ?
