public class ConnectionManager {

    private Connection conn_m= null;

    public ConnectionManager(String dbserver){
        try {
            String driver = "org.postgresql.Driver";
            String url = "jdbc:postgresql://localhost:5432/"+ dbserver;
            String username = "postgres";
            String password = "postgres";
            conn_m = DriverManager.getConnection(url, username, password);
            System.out.println("Connection Success !!!");
        } catch (ClassNotFoundException ex) {
            System.out.println("ERROR : Class Not Found");
        } catch (SQLException ex) {
            System.out.println("ERROR JDBC Configuration");

    public Connection getConnection() {
        return conn_m;
    public static void main(String[] args){
        ConnectionManager obj = new ConnectionManager("db_student");


Java class ConnecionManager above functions perform connection database "db_student" in PostgreSQL.
If the connection is successful, it will display a message Connection Success !!!
"ERROR : Class Not Found" message will appear if you do not add a library PostgreSQL JDBC Driver. Please add the library to fix this.

While the y error message will appear if you are wrong in configuring URL, username, password, no database or database name wrong. please check the configuration again. customize to your database.

Please leave a comment if you have any problems about the database connection.
