Im Completely new to the use of Databases. I'll start off my explaining my project. I want to be able to make an Online Banking System where a user can create an account, login, deposit money, and trnasfer it to another account thats been created. Like i said im new to databases so i honestly have no clue on where to start. I tried using MySQL and h2 but it got very messy with the configuration and i came across a bunch of errors. could someone help me out in terms of what SQL to use and how to properly set it up? *Note: I am using IntelliJ Community Version*

You say you're going to make an online banking system, which to me implies web application.

Do you already have experience working with servlets? I'd start there, because database configuration often ties in strongly with servlet containers.

The MySQL handbook and books introducing MySQL should tell you how to connect to it. Look in the Java™ Tutorials about database connections. But make sure you get the SQL running at the terminal or command line before you try connecting to Java® code.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
