by Dinesh Thakur Category: Servlet with MySql Database

This Function will represent the current date on the web browser.

first i make a table in database named 'dbase' with required fields and values which is under the reference of mySql(php myAdmin). Here i import all mandatory java package from the java library as program needs. Then after i make a class named 'MySqlCurrDate' extends 'HttpServlet'. And here i use serviceMethod() which will get request from the doGet()Method for getting output on the web browser. After i load all the required drivers for accessing database. After then i declare mandatory variables like i declare 'Connection' this variable does the job to create a link between database and the actual code. The other one i declare is 'resultSet' that will fetch the value from selected column and rows. Now here i declare the 'preparedStatement' that will use to execute the selected query like executeQuery() as (Select CURDATE() AS today). Here i use the doGet()Method for output on a web browser.

For getting the output in the tabular form i use 'HTML' code and tags that will show output in a manner way on web browser.
