I've just started to learn MySQL and JDBC.

I created a table called testdb using phpmyadmin. Table just has 2 columns called first and last. When I am trying to connect the database from my java class, I get MySQLSyntaxError. However I could not figure it out.

Here is my class:

import java.sql.Connection;
import java.sql.DriverManager;
import java.sql.PreparedStatement;
import java.sql.ResultSet;
import java.sql.SQLException;
 
public class Main {
 
    public static void main(String[] args) throws ClassNotFoundException, SQLException {
        String url = "jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/testdb";
 
        //Accessing driver from the JAR file.
        Class.forName("com.mysql.jdbc.Driver");
 
        //Creating a variable for the connection "con"
        Connection con = DriverManager.getConnection(url,"root","password");
 
        //Here is the query
        PreparedStatement statement = con.prepareStatement("select * from name");
 
        //Execute query
        ResultSet result = statement.executeQuery();
 
        while(result.next()) {
            System.out.println(result.getString(1) + " " + result.getString(2));
        }
 
 
    }
 
}


And here is the exception:

Exception in thread "main" com.mysql.jdbc.exceptions.jdbc4.MySQLSyntaxErrorException: Table 'testdb.name' doesn't exist

    Re: MySQLSyntaxErrorException

    Hey Ashish Pandey!

    You've created a table named testdb therefore your query should be
    select * from testdb
    not select * from name
    you should really check your stacktraces.
