    Default Help with embedding database

    I'm having a hard time grasping the idea of embedding a database into the application. I've read various tutorials and guides and I'm still a bit lost. I've created the shell of the program in NetBeans and i have yet to embed the database. I was wondering if anyone could help me out here and also suggest an embedded database (ie derby) to use. I'm sorry if I'm not making much sense but I am quite confused.

    Thanks

    Please if you're going to reply, don't reply with a let me google that for you link.

    Hi!
    You can give HSQLDB a try. It's a clear example of embedded DB and we have successfully used it in several projects.
    Basically, you don't need to install the DB engine. Just deliver the hsqldb.jar with your application, as you would do with the rest of libraries you use.

    You question is a bit open ended, so what exactly are you stuck with? Did you try to embed a database by adding the appropriate library? Did you try loading the driver class? Did you try creating a database? See the following if you are considering Derby

    Add the library to your classpath. If you don't know what this means, I recommend doing an internet search for thses the terms. Once you have done this, write a small test program to test the database (see link above), and if you have problems post the code and any and all errors (runtime/compile time) associated with the code
