It has been a long time since I have programmed anything. Grew-up in the 80's using basic.
I am currently somewhat fluent in JAVA(R) but I need some help understanding the current state of databases.
I am developing a cd that needs a stand alone database for the Java program that I am writing.
I am using WindowsXP.
What is a good database that is simple to use?
I know this is a generic question just let me know what I am leaving out and I will fill in some detail.
