Suitable database for desktop application

For my application I need a suitable database. The database should pass following criteria,
[1] Zero installation,
[2] Zero configuration,
[3] Portable (the data should be stored in a single file so that it could be moved from one system to another manually)

Thanks in advance.

Derby would suit your requirements. you could move the database as a jar file alog with the application.
