I want to practice SQL queries and JDBC programs with a Database. I dont have one for myself. Are there any online Databases available on the web for free usage?
Or any other freely downloadable (small) databases available?
Please give URLs for such resources.

Hmm, beyond doing a google search, I usually use MySQL (free but large) or good ol' MS Access if I'm just messing around.
I'd recommend at least one of these two sonce they are usually available and have JDBC drivers available (or jdbc dbc bridge, as the case may be). I don't see a free, small database including JDBC drivers as well.
Feel free to correct me though

if you're using linux, you can also try Postgres
