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.
