Hello Friends I am new in JDBC programming. I just started learning JDBC. And i have one question - which database i should use? Would you please help me in selecting database. And which software will be needed for working on that database using JDBC.

JDBC (and SQL) are meant to be database-independent.
If you use JDK6 it comes with a database (Derby), so you don't have to install any drivers.
Side note- I suggested MySQL because if you're getting started in JDBC for the first time and need a learning tool, you're probably *not* making the decision to release products for a commercial company
PS And even if you are, then if you are a beginning you should *definitely* use MySQL in this case so you don't waste tons of money buying DBMS software you might not learn to use. Oracle, MySQL and DB2 ain't cheap for real licenses. [ June 25, 2007: Message edited by: Scott Selikoff ]
