    Question Creating a Database for a Mobile App

    I have been looking around on the web for a resource that will allow me to create a database with java.
    It looks like that I can use sql server compact for what I need, but I don't see any free resources to help figure out how to make it happen.

    I am currently working with a partner to create a mobile android app, and I hope to convert the finished product into an iphone app for a dual release on both platforms.

    Can anyone help me out with these problems?

    Pure embeddable Java databases are H2, HSQLDB and Derby (I prefer H2 myself). I have no idea what works on Android; Android does not utilize the Java platform, it only steals the language and a subset of the API.

    What exactly do you want to with said database? Most applications don't store a local database but rather utilize webservices to communicate with an external server. Which database or technology you then use to communicate with it is then 100% your choice and cross-platform.

    We are trying to output a list from a local database.

    Well if you describe it as vaguely as that, you can do that with a text file as well.
