Hiya,

I remember now...
That's why I'm interested in local and remote DBs. A light DB with 
recent data which synchronises with the remote.
I have been doing this with Derby and HSQLDB (both can run as client and 
server). They're fairly lightweight for client apps, although HSQLDB 
worries me a little due to it's laxness on error checking (which makes 
it faster).
Now that SQLite can handle larger datasets I might move onto that.

Cheers,

Luis.
