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

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

} catch(SQLException ex) {
