Have you google this topic? Base on the question you ask you don't really know how mysql DB and netbeans IDE work together? If you did you wouldn't need post that.

This is the link for the connection:

Read this, it's has a simple example on how to create a select option (check box/radio button):

just pass the method name to the page where your processing is done
based on the method name you may call the appropriate method as follows

for example: the following are the methods to execute (think this would be servelet or jsp whatever you want )

method_name = request.getParameter("metod_to_execute");



}else if(method_name.equalIgnoreCase("delete")){


}else if(method_name.equalIgnoreCase("update")){



the only thing you have to do is just send the method_to_excute value to this page from the selection of your choice

i think you got my point

if you have any doubts in my clarification let me know

happy coding

actually, saying you are using NetBeans as IDE shows that you're notr really experienced. if you were, you would know that

String myString = new String("yup");

just like any other code in java, does exactly the same when written in NetBeans, VI, notepad, eclipse, SpringSource, JCreator, ...
