How to perform delete sql query in JSP and Servlets using JDBC ?

A simple web application showing how to query a table in a database i.e performing a delete query using JDBC

Steps for querying a Database using JDBC -

1. Download the driver jar from Internet and place it in WEB-INF/lib folder of your Web application. Here I am using MySql as Database so I have downloaded the jar with name as : "mysql-connector-java-5.1.20-bin.jar"

2. Create a Database (am using MySql as backend) name as "javaee".

3. Create a table in "javaee" database as "customer". Run the create query stated below -

CREATE TABLE customer (
   'First Name' varchar(30) ,
   'Last Name' varchar(30) ,
   'E-Mail' varchar(45) ,
   'City' varchar(30) ,
   'password' varchar(30) NOT NULL,
   PRIMARY KEY ('password')

4. Populate the table user with some data (of your own), if not run the four insert queries stated below -

insert into customer () values ('Jonty','Magic','','Pune','123456');

insert into customer () values ('Java','Sun','','New York','456');

insert into customer () values ('Jesse','lool','','Jamaica','23456');

insert into customer () values ('Cameroon','Black','','Sydney','34');

5. Create a Servlet. It will perform necessary update query. The code for servlet is shown below -

package com.hubberspot.jdbc;

import java.sql.Connection;
import java.sql.DriverManager;
import java.sql.ResultSet;
import java.sql.SQLException;
import java.sql.Statement;
import javax.servlet.ServletConfig;
import javax.servlet.ServletException;
import javax.servlet.annotation.WebServlet;
import javax.servlet.http.HttpServlet;
import javax.servlet.http.HttpServletRequest;
import javax.servlet.http.HttpServletResponse;

public class DeleteJdbcQueryServlet extends HttpServlet {

 Connection connection = null;
 ResultSet resultSet = null;
 Statement statement = null;
 static String query = null;
 String url = null;
 String username = null;
 String password = null;

 public void init(ServletConfig config) throws ServletException {

  url = "jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/javaee";
  username = "root"; 
  password = "root"; 
  try {

   connection = DriverManager.getConnection(url, username , password);
  catch (Exception e) {



 protected void doGet(
   HttpServletRequest request, 
   HttpServletResponse response
   ) throws ServletException, IOException {

  doPost(request, response);


 protected void doPost(
   HttpServletRequest request, 
   HttpServletResponse response
   ) throws ServletException, IOException {

  query = "delete from customer where First_Name='Jonty';";


  query = "delete from customer where First_Name='Java';";


 private void executeQuery(String query) {

  try {

   statement = connection.createStatement();

  catch (SQLException e) {



 public void destroy() {
  try {    
  catch (SQLException e) {




Output after Insert query -
