I have to look for a appropriate database for my application, that satisfy following criteria,
- Zero intallation
- Zero configuration
- Portable (client wants database file to have the ability to change in one machine to a different by hand.)
Please suggest us a appropriate database for that above criteria.
I'd recommand h2
For java I'll opt for Apache Derby (also known as Java DB).
I suggest JavaDB, technology-not only being an in process database and contains good performance. I have tried personally it in a number of projects, mainly in Java Swing desktop programs.
for me personally mongodb also meets these criteria (unless of course you actually need sql database)
