For my own purposes (mainly a greek tutoring program) I have used sqlite.
This is a file-based SQL database, is very fast, very lightweight, VERY easy
to use (there are only three or four calls required) and for my taste works
fine. It has modules for just about any language you care to name. It is in
the public domain.
