Display Data from Database through JSP And JDBC

Creation of a context file

Create any folder in any drive as (E:\Jsp). Inside that folder store your .jsp files. Give the Context path name as jsp and docBase as E:\Jsp, here docBase means the total path where we are storing our .jsp files. These changes are done in the server.xml file, which is present in (E:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 6.0\conf) directory.

Server.xml file

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?>

Table creation

First create an employee table in Oracle and insert some data as below

Create table employee (empid varchar(10),empname varchar(10),sal int)
 insert into employee values('e001','Raj',10000)
 insert into employee values('e002','Harry',20000)
 insert into employee values('e003','Sunil',30000)
 insert into employee values('e004','Pollock',40000)
 insert into employee values('e005','Jonty',50000)
 insert into employee values('e006','Kallis',60000)
 insert into employee values('e007','Richard',70000)

Creation of dsn (database source name)

Start-Control panel- Administrative Tools- Data Sources (ODBC)-go to system dsn tab-click add button-select a driver for which you want to set up data source (for Oracle- Oracle in XE)-select it and click finish-give any name in data source name textbox-then click ok button.
Note:- Here Username=system, Password=pintu and Dsn name=dsn1


<%@ page import="java.sql.*" %>
<body bgcolor="Yellow">
  <table border="1" width="30%" height="30%">
  <tr><th><font color='Red'>EMP ID</font></th><th><font color='Red'>EMP NAME</font></th><th><font color='Red'>SALARY</font></th></tr>
Connection con=DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:odbc:dsn1","system","pintu");
Statement stmt=con.createStatement();
ResultSet rs=stmt.executeQuery("select *  from employee");
      String EmployeeId=rs.getString("empid");
      String EmployeeName=rs.getString("empname");
      int Salary=rs.getInt("sal");
<td><b><font color='#663300'><%=EmployeeId%></font></b></td>
<td><b><font color='#663300'><%=EmployeeName%></font></b></td>
<td><b><font color='#663300'><%=Salary%></font></b></td>

Running the application

Run the tomcat then write the below line in the URL


Here jsp is the Context path, which we mentioned in the server.xml file, which is present in (E:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 6.0\conf) directory.

After giving the URL a set a listing will come, here only one appears, as Display.jsp,click it



using database in jsp
