I'd like to explore my options on a project I'm considering...  

What is javas ability to connect to backends...?  Such as MSSQL, Oracle, etc.  Are your options open as to where you want to pull your data from?  I'm think yes, but I have no experience in Java and I figure EE would know what I'm looking for...

The standard mechanism for interfacing Java to databases is through JDBC. JDBC, kind of like ODBC, provides a standard interface, which can be applied to various backends. There are a number of levels of JDBC, depending on whether they are implemented in pure Java or not etc. etc. Many companies make them for most of the popular databases. Sun, at javasoft, provides a list of companies, their products and their targets. They cost in the 100's of dollars usually.
