I am planning on trying out embedded java databases. Can anyone please any free reliable java databases?

Quite a few are available, with Hypersonic probably being the standard bearer.

You can try with Berkeley DB provided by Oracle.
I had once done a project on Berkely DB

Thanks for your cues(Sic?).
I went to the sun site and stumbled upon java DB (Derby).. Unless anyone of your raise any objections about it, I am going to proceed with it for now..

I have only used HSQLDB (hypersonic), but I have heard good things about Derby too.
I agree. Here's the link:
