I am considering develop something use a Access database, which has been formed earlier by other my colleagues.
However, I am trying to develop a cross-platform application, and I believe Access is MS related and is not friendly to Linux.
There are many options of the database like Oracle and IBM DB2. I think Access data can be easily converted to either of them. I haven't got any experience about the database development. Any ideas which one is better to cooperate with JAVA and also suitable for cross-platform application?
