    You can use any database you want, as long as you don't use MsAccess. The choice of database is not determined by the technology you use but by what you are going to do with that database.

    You can use any DB as your wish.

    But I would recommend MySql. Because it's completely free and from Java related community

    Look in your jdk directory and see if there is a 'db' directory; since Java 1.6. the Derby database system (or JavaDB) comes bundled with the distribution. It is all written in Java and has a small foot print.

    kind regards,
