free database for java

  Asked By: Richard    Date: Jan 27    Category: Java    Views: 568

I'm looking for free database for java.
what database do you think is good and simple?

I've try:
cloudscape (not really free)
mysql (need license for production)

I like postgresql but it can't run on windows, thus limiting the portability
I think mckoi is good, but I also want to know your recommendations.

ive never had any issues with mysql. but if you get on better with mckoi
then use that. its down the preference.

I don't think your assesment of the mysql licensing is correct. My
understanding is
it is available for free  under the GPL license  and can be used for production
Please note that I am not a licensing expert and you may wish to do your own

With that said 90% of people I know who want a free database  have chosen mysql
like it.

Yes I guess you right. I've check mysql license  myself, it's under GPL.
I've been told by a friend before that it's not free  in production but
had never check it myself.

try Firebird, I use and it is quite good  and 100% free  (open source, it is
the open versio of Interbase, now it is in his 1.5 version):
