Subject RE: How to proceed ?

I had the same problem a couple of months ago...our project ambitiously
to develop J2EE architecture with client/server enabled database and
(desktop) applications with embedded database.

We invested some time and compared the following databases: Hypersonic
(HSQLDB) , Derby, MySql and PostgreSQL. We also wanted to test Daffodil DB
but at the time there was no free version.
Our project requested an embedded (or in.process) database and a
client/server database.
We wrote a "SQL-tester" which gave us our winners:
- Derby for our client Java applications
- PostgreSQL for our J2EE enterprise server

One fact that I was in favour of is that both Derby and PostgreSQL work
together with Daffodil Replicator which became open source in october.

With the decisions made we can now procede to develop our J2EE

I hope this can help you.
