Your application sounds a good place to use hsqldb. A good place to start is the main hsqldb site where they have the download and extensive documentation.

You access it through JDBC, so it shouldn't be much different than any other database.

Hi kumar satish!

hsqldb is good to start work but it has some problem like multiple database usage in single application.

I have used Dollar$one free database.It is most feasible for multiple database connection from a single application.
