Even after adding the MySQL Connector jar file in my project, the statement "import java.sql.Connection" is an error.

package com.Connectors.Data;

import java.sql.Connection; (Error here)
import java.sql.DriverManager;

public class Connection {
  public static void main(String [] args){
	  Connection conn = null;
	  try {
		  Connection conn = DriverManager.getConnection("", "", "");  (Error here)
	  }catch(Exception e){

I'm using the latest version of connector J and have tried some other versions.

First of all, take a closer look at your class name. Its `Connection`, where as you are also importing `Connection` class, hence the conflict. Rename your to something else as well as your public class name should be same as something else.
