I�m a student who has taken several Java courses but am still relatively new to Java. I�ve been able to connect and query a local database on my machine via JDBC. Now I would like to establish a remote database so I can develop some JSP files for my web site that would be able to query and retrieve information. My question is how do I go about setting up a database that can be accessed via the internet? Are there database service providers that provide Oracle or SQL Server services for you? Or do you have to buy your own database software, install it and maintain it yourself? Basically I�m looking for a relatively inexpensive way to establish a database that can be accessed via the internet. ANY thoughts, comments, or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
