Open A JDBC Connection

·
Free Resource
This opens a JDBC connection givine a driver class name, database URL, user name and password. It is possible this method is deprecated and some newer procedure is preferred. I need to look into that.


    /*
    ** driverClass is the JDBC driver class name as a String.
    */

    try
    {
	Class.forName (driverClass);
	connection = DriverManager.getConnection (url,
	    userName, password);
	connection.setAutoCommit (false);
    }
    catch (SQLException ex)
    {
	/*
	** "Connect error"...
	*/
    }
    catch (java.lang.ClassNotFoundException ex)
    {
	/*
	** "Driver error"...
	*/
    }
