I thought I already posted this question but I don't see it here.
Does JDBC have the capability to let me create databases programmatically so I can completely automate the installation of an application?
Could I even have my application automatically start up the MySQL process if it is not already running? How would I do that?
I just started reading about JDO -- perhaps that is what it is for.
