To sum it all up:  

1-The Database will most likely be on a server (if not, it has to be installed on EVERY client machine, and I don't think that will be the case).

2-The JDBC driver that you load will most likely be a type 4 (unless you have middleware that supports a type III driver, like IBM's websphere).

3-You'll connect to the database using the URL of the database.

Oh, the databse must be on the same ip as that from which the URL of the applet was hosted.
