Okay I have been struggeling with a problem the past two days, and I Cant figure why, so I am pretty much stock. I talked to some people, and they dont know what is wrong either. I want to connect my servlet to a MYSQL database, and I am using MAMP.
This is my code:

import java.sql.Connection;
import java.sql.DriverManager;

public class TestConnection {
public static void main(String[] args) {
try {
System.out.println("Loaded driver");
Connection con = DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:mysql://localhost/db", "root", "root");
System.out.println("Connected to MySQL");
catch (Exception ex) {

Screenshot of my eclipse:
Ind the left side I have my mysql connector.

My database is called db, and in my database i made two tables: username, and password. Sceenshot is here:

So when I run this servlet I get a 404 error. The screenshot of that is here:

In my servlet I also tried to put this in the con, but with the same result:
Connection con = DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:mysql://localhost/db1", "root", "root");


Connection con = DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:mysql://", "root", "root");

The reason I use servlets is because it is an university assigment, where we have to use servlet. I really hope someone can help, because it is driving me crazy :-/ So does anyone out there have a suggestion to what I have to do, to connect to MYSQL database with this servlet?

Best Regards
