    When I distributed a program I used JNLP.
    The database can be included in the jar file in a location relative to the class path;
    to access the data base from Java code, use Class.getResource...

    As far as getting MS Access loaded and running, I'm sorry--I can't help.

    JNLP is the most suitable for your requirement. Don't try to create executables like *.exe, *.msi and so on. All of those things are windows specific.

    Search our forum, you can find lots of related discussion to JNLP.
