i'd recommend mysql

I've never actually used postgres and I've seen comparisons that it is faster than mysql in some regards and offers a bunch of functionality which MySQL does NOT, at this time! ;)

I'd like to make my recommendation for MySQL, it should come with your FC cdroms... you'd have to download the Query and Admin interface to get the SQL Server like Enteprise Management console (you can find them at www.mysql.com). To connect MySQL with Java, you'd need to have Java installed on your machine and you can obtain the JDBC connector from (obviously!) mysql website.

MySQL 5 is still in beta stage, prior to that there is not support of views and triggers. I would suggest PostgreSQL
A: Yes
Q: Is top-posting bad?

I second the recommendation for PostgreSQL. It has support for the enterprise level functionality that MySQL is only beginning to get now. As an added bonus, none of its interface libraries is GPLed.

you asked for server otherwise i could suggest you SqLite(http://sqlite.org)

it has triggers and SP and faster than both PostgreSql and Mysql Server :P
