by Dinesh Thakur Category: Servlet with MySql Database

This Function will return the string argument, left-padded with the specified string.

First of all i made a database named 'dbase' within the reference of mySql(php myAdmin).Here i also import required java packages from java library. Then after i made a class named 'MySqlLEFTPADFunction' which extends 'HttpServlet'. Then i use service()Method that will bring request from the doGet()Method for output. Just before declaring variable i loaded all the required drivers that are necessary for database accessing. Then after i use variable like i use 'connection' for creating a link between database and java code. Other i use 'resultSet' that will do the required job to fetch value from the selected columns and rows. Other one is 'preparedStatement' that will use to executing the selected Query like executeQuery() as (Select LPAD('MySql',5,'!!'). In the last phase i use doGet()Method that will present output on the web browser.

Now i used some kind of 'HTML' code and tags that will present the output in a tabular form on a web browser.
