here's my code
import java.sql.DriverManager;
import java.sql.Connection;
import java.sql.SQLException;

public class Testdb {

public static void main(String[] argv) throws ClassNotFoundException, SQLException {

System.out.println("-------- MySQL JDBC Connection Testing ------------");


System.out.println("MySQL JDBC Driver Registered!");
Connection connection = null;

connection = DriverManager
.getConnection("jdbc:mysql:\\localhost:3306/local MYSQL55","root", "root");

if (connection != null) {
System.out.println("You made it, take control your database now!");
} else {
System.out.println("Failed to make connection!");
