I'd suggest to read the Java Tutorial by Sun:

A sample attached. Save it to a file called, modify the 
server address, database name, table name etc. to suite your needs, and 
compile with "javac". To run, add postgresql.jar to your 
classpath. For example:

java -cp path/to/postgresql.jar JdbcTest
