by Dinesh Thakur Category: Servlet with MySql Database

This function Will Return the ADD (sum) value of the required field from a table like (salary, age etc...).

We need to make a table named 'worker' into a database named 'dbase’. The required fields must be filling with values. After that, Java packages to be call from java library. Here we need to define a class named 'MySqlSUMFunction' extends the 'HttpServlet'. This program is been responsible for desired output as required statement from user. Here we use the service method() (this method is responsible for calling the doGet() method to getting the request). the variable which are mandatory to use link or present Backend and Frontend will have to be declared like Connection,ResultSet,preparedStatement all these variables does their required functions or job. Like the connection variable will use to make Connection between database and java code. The drivers are also to be load then created an object of Connection interface. After that preparedStatement will use to represent the Query for output like 'SELECT SUM(salary) AS total FROM worker'. The resultset will be define as executeQuery() to execute the query for desired result. And in the last we used doGet() method for fetching result on a web browser.

Now on the browser to get an output in designer look we just use the 'HTML' code tags, which will present the Output in Tabular form for an efficient look.
