I'm new in combining java with databases and I'm wondering which type of database I need
- the user doesn't need to install database software, just installing the application is enough
- certain users need to be able to edit the database without the need to recompile the project

If this is a desktop app, then an embeddable DB like HSQLDB or Apache Derby might fit the bill. HSQLDB in particular stores its data in human-readable files, so a careful user could edit the DB by editing the file (provided the app doesn't use the DB at the same time).
