Getting a Mysql auto increment value back into my Java client GUI?

I'm busy developing a Java GUI client/server database application with
Netbeans IDE 6.0 and
Mysql to automate the data management and other tasks for my Dongo
(see to get an idea what is the targeted result
of all
my programming). I have a question as described below.

To insert a country in my mysql country table I use the code below
which is working fine:

  private static void countryInsert(Country country) {
    if (country.isValid())
    try {
      String sqlString = "INSERT INTO country VALUES(0, '" +
      sqlString += "', '" + country.getName() + "')";
    } catch (SQLException ex) {
null, ex);

The first column sid of the country table (as for all my tables) is
auto increment:

| sid | bigint(20) unsigned | NO | PRI | NULL | auto_increment

I would like to get the value assigned to sid by Mysql back into my
client Java application
preferably with the one sql statement I'm already using to insert.
Only if really necessary
with a second sql statement. What is the best way to programm this?

Thanks and best regards :c),
