I want to understand if variables declared outside /inside try block are /can be accessible to
catch block as well.

Please find a code template below:

Basically can i use Stmt like this inside catch block to capture exceptions(logging errors)

void insertException()

Connection conn = null;
PreparedStatement stmt = null;


catch(SQLException sqle)
String expQuery = "insert into tablename values(' ', ' ',' ');
stmt = conn.prepareStatement(expQuery); -- this should be again inside a try catch block
int catch1 = stmt.executeUpdate();

what can be the alternative to this.

I have created a file in NetBeans it is having a path for HTML files but when i compile and run that java file i am unable to get any HTML pages only the java utility opens up without opening the corresponding HTML pages.

Please help!
In the below code i am unable to put the implemetation of compareTo.Please help me with some code which can be inserted at " ? " in the compareTo method so that i get the output 12.

Also pls expalin me the method.

I tried with the following:

1) parameter- compareTo(x o)
return i.compareTo(i2.i)

And i am getting the compiler error as - x class did not implement the compareTo method(I know that compareTo itself implements for String and Integer types.)

import java.util.*;

public class x implements Comparable{

public static void main(String [] args) {

ArrayList<x> list = new ArrayList<x>();
list.add(new x(2));
list.add(new x(1));

private int i;
public x(int i) { this.i = i;}
public String toString() { return Integer.toString(i); }

public int CompareTo(? o) {
x i2 = (x)o ;
return ? ;
What changes should i make in the below code so that it compiles & runs successfully :

Also i am looking forward to use only for-loop both normal and the enhanced for loop and not the while-loop to traverse through the list.

class x {
public static Iterator reverse(List list){
return list.iterator();

public static void main(String [] args){
List list = new ArrayList();
for(Object obj:reverse(list))
System.out.print(obj + " " );
Please explain me how should i develop the technique to solve GC questions:
Also at any line in the following code, is a single object eligible for garbage collection n why?

public class Island {
Island n ;
public static void main(String [] args) {
Island i2 = new Island();
Island i3 = new Island();
Island i4 = new Island();

i2.n = i3;
i3.n = i4;
i4.n = i2;

i2 = null;
i3 = null;
i4 = null;
Please explain me the output:

class Tree {
private static String tree = "tree ";
string getTree() {return tree; }

class Elm extends Tree {
private static String tree = "elm ";
public static void main(String [] args) {
new Elm().go(new Tree());

void go(Tree t) {
String s = new Elm().getTree();

I want to know that since getTree() is inherited by class Elm then why it does not use its own tree variable.
