hey guys

I've been trying to connect this jsp site with MySQL database for a school assignment and I just can't seem to get it to work. It's getting really really frustrating because I have copied my friend's code(which does work on his pc) and for some odd reason it just won't work on my pc!(yes i changed the database names/passwords/table names in the code)

I'm using Tomcat, MySQL front and MySQL server(same as my classmates).

Here's the code:
Code:
<html>
<head><title>Enter to database</title></head>
<body>
<table>
<%@ page import="java.util.*" %>
<%@ page import="javax.sql.*" %>
<%@ page import="java.sql.*" %>
<%@ page import = "java.awt.*" %>
<%@ page import = "java.awt.event.*" %>
<%@ page import = "java.util.*" %>
<%@ page import = "javax.swing.*" %>

<% 
    String queryString =null;
    PreparedStatement statement = null;
    Connection connection = null;
    ResultSet myData = null;
	Object ophalen;
        try {
            
            
            Class.forName("com.mysql.jdbc.Driver");
            
            
            connection = DriverManager.getConnection
                    ("jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/friends","root", "root");
            
            
            
            
            
            queryString = "SELECT * from tableoffriends" ;
            statement = connection.prepareStatement(queryString);

            myData = statement.executeQuery();
            
			myData.next();

			//zet alles in een variable en roep de variable onder op , stayli <%= variable

                

        } 
		catch(Exception SQLException) {
        }

%>
 <%= myData.getString(1) %> 
 <%= myData.getString(2) %> 
 <%= myData.getString(3) %> 
 

</body>
</html>
