Hi,

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.

Or you could try SQLite.

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