Hi ,
I would like to know if JavaDB is certified to be installed on Android.
If someone has a link on, I'll be very glad.
Sincerely ,

Most if not all of the libraries will work, but it is not "certified" as you put it. You can also use Oracle Berkeley DB Java Edition. Check out Ed Burnette's article on Java integration: http://blogs.zdnet.com/Burnette/?p=504

No problem. I forgot to mention that Android integrates very nicely with MySQL and SQL, since it support the java.sql library.

Android already supports SQLite out of the box.. I am sure mobile applications would not require a full fledged database like MySQL or PgSQL..

Just about any Java program or jar can be made to work on Android. However for best results I recommend you stick with the database that is built in to both Android and iPhone: SQLite. This is covered in Chapter 9 of my book, and also at various sites on the internet including http://sqlite.org .
