    Default Java DB - Embedded or localhost?

    Using Netbeans 7.4, I have hand coded a GUI (SE desktop distributable application), created a single table database (Java DB using 'Embedded Driver' connection).

    As I'm at that stage of creating a (non-CRUD) database application using Hibernate 2.0, is it possible to use the Java DB/Embedded Driver with Hibernate or does it need to be a 'localhost' connection?

    Any guidance/advice would be greatly recieved - I'm a little stuck at the moment, relatively new to Java but want to learn to create this application.

    Default Re: Java DB - Embedded or localhost?

    You can use almost any RDBMS with JPA. The details for connecting the RDBMS to the specific JPA implementation (i.e., in this case Hibernate JPA) are going to be slightly different.

    But there are examples on the web for hooking up Java DB/Derby to Hibernate JPA.
