    database alternative

    Hi there,

    I've been having a heck of a time trying to make Java applications and
    servlets gain access to MySQL databases. I'm ready to throw in the
    towel! I'm wondering if any of you out there can recommend a more Java
    friendly database system. The only reason I selected MySQL was because
    it was free. I guess you get what you pay for

    Please advise.

    Umm, what kind of problems are you having?? I've used MySQL with java very
    successfully on a half dozen or so applications. It's really pretty easy
    once you have the server set up properly. Just use the connecter/J jdbc
    driver at http://mmmysql.sourceforge.net/ and connect as you would to any
    other dbms. If you need assistance, I would be happy to help
