Generate Jar File - Java Netbeans with Mysql localhost

I have created a java application in netbeans, and I intend to create an installer for the project.

For this I have created a jar file of the application, but I'm using the mysql database localhost.

How can I generate Jar File with Mysql localhost .

Can anyone help me please?

Thanks and regards


Maybe not the best way to express myself, what I mean is that the database is created locally (localhost).

The connection of the application with the database is done this way:


return driverManager.getConnection("jdbc:mysql://localhost/database","root", "root");

I want to create a jar file of my application that has a database created locally.


I am going to explain a few things:

  1. You do not need to hard - code the Connect URL into your code. This is why you are asking for ways of creating the database as localhost. I suggest you do not hard code the Connect URL in the code. Instead write it in an editable File either a Properties file or even a text file. Let the Application read the Editable file and pass the Parameters to the Code.

  2. An Application running in your Local Machine where the database is will connect using Localhost. But a the same Application running remotely from another Machine whether in the Internet or Local access network will not Connect this way.That is why I am insisting on NOT Hard-Coding the Connect String.

  3. The database Name, user, and Password Including the Host will change from time to Time depending on which environment the Application is running in. So again if the environment changes and the variables are not the same the Application will Not Connect to the database.


User a Properties file:

Load the file as a Properties file:

Properties prop = new Properties();
    InputStream input = null;

    try {

        input = new FileInputStream("");

        // load a properties file

        // get the property value and print it out
        Connection conn =  DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:mysql://" + prop.getProperty("") + "/" + prop.getProperty("db.dbname"), prop.getProperty("db.user"), prop.getProperty("db.password"));

    } catch (IOException ex) {
    } finally {
        if (input != null) {
            try {
            } catch (IOException e) {

This way you will never have to worry about what database the application is running on as you will just have to edit the and the Application will do the rest.

I hope I gave you an answer or better still other ideas on how to handle your situation.
