I have used the following piece of code to connect to a MySql database.The error message that i get is "Access denied for user 'ROOT'@'TRELSTON' (using password: YES)". Please check the code and see if it is perfect or i have made a mistake somewhere or this error is because i have no access to the database. My PM thinks i have made a mistake.
Please help.

String dbUrl ="jdbc:mysql://dest:3306/ai?user=ROOT&password=root";
String dbClass = "com.mysql.jdbc.Driver";
//String query = "Select * FROM users";
Connection con = null;
try {

Class.forName(dbClass).newInstance();
//con = DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:mysql://destscience:3306/Sakai","ROOT","sa");
con = DriverManager.getConnection(dbUrl);
//Statement stmt = con.createStatement();
out.print("Connection Created");
con.close();
}
catch(Exception e)
{
out.print(e.getMessage());
}

Trelston,
Welcome to JavaRanch!

Can you connect to mysql from the command line with that username/password? This will help narrow down where the problem lies.
