Hello All,

I am creating a simple servlet, which is retrieving a value from the database. i am using eclipse IDE.

Here is the code.


Getting an error:

Have you called next() before using the ResultSet? Try this Java™ Tutorials Page for more details.

Is the code throwing the Exception actually quoted here; it says at doGet but I can't seem to find doGet in your quoted code?

(As Campbell Ritchie says)

The exception hapended in Ex.doGet
You posted the code of Ex.doPost

[edit: mistyped name]

Can you check if the Ex class executed by your servlet container is compiled from the Ex class code that you show us?
