no standard combination in implementing system.
you can choose whatever database vendor. If you want me to compare between mySql and oracle, it's very easy to say that oracle is better than mySQL and maybe the best database. Please don't worry about wheter jsp can work well with database or not. jsp is just presentation tier that render html tag to web browser. The thing you need to concern is the feather of JDBC which mostly provide by database vendor. You should check that the JDBC support all feather you want e.g. Transaction, XA 2 phase commit.

Best luck.

JDBC is Java Database Connectivity, it is API standard that provide by Sun Microsystem and implement independently by each database vendor.

It also depends on budget you have. Oracle is commercial and mySQL is free but no support.

JSP is technology for implementing Web Application that standard by Sun Microsystem.
So I recommend you to qualify your programmer by checking certification.

1.SCJP(Sun Certified Java Programmer)
2.SCWCD(Sun Certified Web Component Developement)

But only cert is not enough. If programmers have cert, it does not mean they can work well. Cert just show that they know at. Not good at. So you have to check his experience also.

Just logic :-)

>> What is the industry standard?

Depends upon the client.

>> But only cert is not enough. If programmers have cert, it does not mean they can work well.

True. I've seen many certified experts who know nothing about the language. I guess an EE certificate is better ;-)
