Welcome to JavaRanch.

The most commonly used all-Java DBs are HSQLDB and Derby. Both can run standalone as servers, or in-process with the application that uses them. I recommend HSQLDB, unless you have huge amounts of data.

What have you tried?

The HSQLDB documentation is rather extensive. In particular the sections on "Running HSQLDB" and "A First Connection Example" should be helpful.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
