I have to use freeware/open source database for pure java swing based stand-alone application. Please suggest what my options are.

TIA

There are lots of options, but to make any kind of sensible recommendation you'll need to flesh out the requirements a bit more.

Thanks for replying Jelle.

It’s an ambitious effort to introduce new way of communicating with database in place of usual JDBC-ODBC with type 1 driver (we are planning to use hibernate to make it more scalable, also in future if we have to go for web based then should be able to do so) .

In terms of data currently it’s not following ORM so wanted capability to do so.

Please let me know if you need anything specific in terms of details.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
