Hello,

I need a database for a standalone Java desktop application. Can anyone make any recommendations:

For now I have two options which I am considering, they are:

1. Hypersonic SQL
2. Java DB (from Sun)

Any ideas, am I on track with these options or should I look at something else?

Looking forward to hearing some thoughts on this.

Thanks

Daniel

Those two are the ones worth checking out if you need an embedded SQL database. Derby (a.k.a. Java DB) is the high-end option, but HSQLDB is very capable as well; I'd probably go with it unless (and until) I ran into some limitation.

I also like SQLite quite well. It has Java drivers, and that way don't need SQLite itself. Just like HSQLDB, your database can be in-memory only, or in a file. HSQLDB is more powerful though, as it also can run in server mode.
