    Not many people realize it but if you have downloaded and installed Java 1.6 JDK you have also downloadeded and installed JavaDB (originally named Derby). It is a full SQL relational database written in Java and it comes with full documentation and has a small footprint and it's free. Try it.

    kind regards,

    You're welcome of course; there is nothing special, or 'better' (mind the quotes) about MySQL over JavaDB; it is more 'known', that's all. Personally I find JavaDB easier to install (just put its .jar file in your classpath and voila). Its documentation is excellent. I don't see any advantages over MySQL.

    kind regards,

    Jos

    if you have to store only few amount of data without concurrent reading/writing and so on you could simple use the java.io classes and write the data to files. so you will be completely indipendent of a database. but the question is which requirements you have to store and retrieve the data in your application.
