Hi, so im trying to use JDBC to update Mysql using Java.

Right now, I've just been trying to connect to the database. I've followed multiple tutorials verbatim, and I'm still getting errors. This is the error I get

You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near '????????????????' at line 1

I've also tried doing what someone else suggested below...

create database with utf-8 character like that:
CREATE DATABASE `test`
CHARACTER SET `utf8`
COLLATE `utf8_general_ci`;

nothing worked. Please help me!!!!

My code:

Connection con = null;
String url = "jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/test";
String user = "root";
String pass = "";
try{
Class.forName("com.mysql.jdbc.Driver").newInstance();
con = DriverManager.getConnection(url, user, pass);
con.close();
}
catch(Exception e){
System.out.println(e.getMessage());
}
