There is a website I know using Java with an Apache server and I would like to know what type of database they are using.

Is there a way to get this information?

Hopefully not.

You can use http://builtwith.com/ and maybe get some clues.  

The db should be behind the scenes and managed from serverside code so you would never see the connection.

As Scott said, hopefully not.  If you can then the site is poorly designed.

I would suggest contacting the site and asking them what they use.  Most places will tell you information like that in my experience.
