what appropriate database should i download if I'm going to create a simple java desktop application ?? I'm new in Java.. please help me.. also i would you please help me on how to connect it.. I'm using Netbeans IDE 6.0.1..
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. [ April 06, 2008: Message edited by: Ulf Dittmer ]

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.
