by Dinesh Thakur Category: Servlet with MySql Database

This Function will Returns the current UTC date and time.

First i made a table in database named 'dbase' within the reference of mySql(php myAdmin). Then i import all the mandatory java packages from the java library as required for program. I made a class named 'MySqlUTCTimeStampFunc', which extends 'HttpServlet'. I use serviceMethod() which is been carry the request from doGet()Method for Output. Then after, to declare the variable i loaded all the required drivers before for database accessing. Here i declare the variables like 'connection' this variable will create a link between database and java code. Then i call 'resultSet' this will be responsible for Getting value from the selected columns and the rows.

Then i declare 'preparedStatement' which will get to execute the selected query like executeQuery() as (Select UTC_TIMESTAMP() AS utc).Here i use doGet()Method which will use to get output on the web browser.

I use here 'Html' code and tags that will present the output in tabular form on the web browser.
