    Connection con = DbConnection.connect(); 
    PreparedStatement ps = null; 
    ResultSet rs = null; 
    
    try {
      
      String sql  = "select count(firstName) from users "; 
      ps = con.prepareStatement(sql); 
      rs = ps.executeQuery(); 
      
      // this will give us the count
      int size = rs.getInt(1);
      System.out.println("You have "+size+" users");
      
      
    } catch(SQLException e) {
      System.out.println(e.toString());
    } finally {
      // close connection
      try {
        rs.close();
        ps.close();
        con.close(); 
      } catch (SQLException e) {
