When you're calling this will read one char. This will be the 2, which has an ASCII value of 50. This is why you're getting 50. It also explains why the place becomes 5; after reading the 2, the br.readLine() call after that returns the 5. The actual place you need to enter is skipped because of this.

Simply change the int str2 = (int); line into this:

Also, you should check out PreparedStatement. Your code has a potential for SQL injection. If someone enters ';DELETE FROM test;UPDATE test SET name=' as the name, the query becomes this:
In other words: clear the names of all records, then delete all records, then try to update a non-existing record. With PreparedStatement this is prevented.
