How do I bundle my Database Information in a stand alone Appl

Hi Guys, your help is needed.

I developed a Java SE Application that talks to a database tables in my computer
(precisely mysql) and I have it in a jar file called MyAppl.jar. MyAppl.jar is working
perfectly well in my private computer which I used in the development.

But my problem now is that when I take the MyAppl.jar to a diferent Computer
it still works but can not access the database again unless I install and create the
same database in the that other computer.

This is logical.
But I knew that it is still possible to bundle these tables in my database in the MyAppl.jar.

I will appricate your guide on how to achieve this in java (ie to have the database information available in MyAppl.jar)

Sounds like a perfect application for an embedded JDBC database like HSQLDB or Apache Derby.

You'll need to be more explicit ... the solution to what? Are you familiar with embedded databases? Have you read up on the two I mentioned? Do you have concerns using them?

I'm sure there's a Wikipedia page on that. After that, check out the HSQLDB and Derby documentation about their respective embedded capabilities; that should provide you with enough information to get started. Embedded mode is just another way of running a Java DB - you'll still be using JDBC to work with it.
