I went to the mySQL site to download a win32 version and couldn't find ont. Is mySQL not for windows?
What database could I set up on my laptop that could come reasonably close to emulating oracle? I'm looking for something that is free with no 30 day restrictions and is free. I want to use it for developing some JDBC stuff as well as teaching JDBC to my class.

The docs say you can do Windows. But they say to download the zip file. I can't find a zip file.

You can indeed download de 3.23.28 version for Windows, look in the older and contributed section (the latest version 3.23.29 has not been released in binary format for Windows yet). For educational purposes it's more than OK.
You would also want to give a try to Interbase (www.inprise.com).
Best luck,

I have MYSQL v.3.23.27 running fine on win2k. No support for prepared statements, tho. I had to dig around a bit to find it. I could email the install file to you (9mb) if you have trouble finding tracking it down. They call it a beta, but also say it's very reliable. I downloaded it about a month ago.

Sorry, error in that last post. I meant "stored procedures" not "prepared statements". Oops. Got my initals backwards.

Hi Paul,
Go to mysql.com/downloads/mysql-3.23.html
You'll see the hyperlink for windows platforms. Just click on it to begin the download.
I've got it up and running for a couple of weeks. There are a few glitches in the SQL syntax (i.e. sub selects) but they supply the work-around in the doc.
Good Luck
Vernon
