The first section of the exam objectives for the SCWCD is about HTTP methods. I did a quick search in the API for the HTTP class but there is none.

What are HTTP methods, please?

I used port 3307 because I thought it was a problem with that port. Anyway, I have set everything back to default.
Now mysql is on port :3306 and my jsp refers to it on that same port but the problem still persists

I am using XP with service pack 2
I am new to SQL and I resently just installed MySQL server on my system. I also have Tomcat installed as my webserver.
This is my problem:

I keep getting this error when my JSP tries to connect to my database

Cannot connect to MySQL server on localhost:3307. Is there a MySQL server running on the machine/port you are trying to connect to?

Tomcat and MySQL both run on my machine!

and here is the java code in my JSP

Help please before I go insane, I've been on it for over 48 hours!

as u know, most java programs start at main and the syntax for the main method is

it is a static method and it can only make calls to static codes. Make sure the object u want to use is istantiated in your main method and also make sure that u import the java.util.*

I hope it solves your problem, I'm a novice too
