How to Retrieve Data from MySQL Using JSP

For retrieve data from MySQL database using JSP first we have to create a table in data base.

The SELECT statement is used to retrieve data from one or more tables:

SELECT column_name(s) FROM table_name

or we can use the * character to retrieve ALL columns from a table:

In this example we retrieve the employee data of a company.

The JSP file for retrieving data from database is:


<%@page import="java.sql.DriverManager"%>
<%@page import="java.sql.ResultSet"%>
<%@page import="java.sql.Statement"%>
<%@page import="java.sql.Connection"%>
String id = request.getParameter("userid");
String driver = "com.mysql.jdbc.Driver";
String connectionUrl = "jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/";
String database = "test";
String userid = "root";
String password = "";
try {
} catch (ClassNotFoundException e) {
Connection connection = null;
Statement statement = null;
ResultSet resultSet = null;
<!DOCTYPE html>

<h1>Retrieve data from database in jsp</h1>
<table border="1">
<td>first name</td>
<td>last name</td>
<td>City name</td>

connection = DriverManager.getConnection(connectionUrl+database, userid, password);
String sql ="select * from users";
resultSet = statement.executeQuery(sql);
<td><%=resultSet.getString("first_name") %></td>
<td><%=resultSet.getString("last_name") %></td>
<td><%=resultSet.getString("city_name") %></td>
<td><%=resultSet.getString("email") %></td>

} catch (Exception e) {


After retrieve the data from the data base the table look like this.
