by Dinesh Thakur Category: Servlet with MySql Database

This Function is use to check the difference of Time or subtracts the time.

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 'MySqlTimeDiffFunc' 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 as 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 TIMEDIFF('2014-05-31 15:45:57','2014-05-31 13:40:50') AS td).Here i use the doGet()Method for output on a web browser.

To get output in tabular form on the web browser i use 'HTML' code and some tags.
