Java Hibernate Basics Data Persistence & ORMs Using JDBC to Connect to a Database

Connect to a database by loading the driver contained in "org.sqlite.JDBC"

and replacing the null value of c with an established database connection to the SQLite database named "treehouse.db". Assume that all pertinent classes have been imported for you.

I followed the previous video got to some understanding but still got confused later on

Application.java
Class.forName("org.sqlite.JDBC"); {
try(Connection c = "treehouse.db" {
 Statement statement=connection.createStatement ();    
} catch(SQLException ex) {
 statemetn.executeUpdate("DROP TABLE");
}

Hi, watch the video, all stuff you need is there.

Try this

// Load class "org.sqlite.JDBC"

Class.forName("org.sqlite.JDBC");

// Establish connection to database named "treehouse.db"

try(Connection c = DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:sqlite:treehouse.db")) {

} catch(SQLException ex) {

}
