If you want your Java application accessible online, you can use Java Enterprise Edition (JEE). It's basically a web framework for Java. However, it's quite advanced. For distributing your desktop application with an embedded database, use SQLite instead of MySQL, it doesn't have to be installed.

We're working on adding courses for that too.

SQLite database is just about the .jar file with the SQLite JDBC driver and the .sqlite3 file with your database. You can attach those files to your application in the Advanced installer. There might be a problem with modifying the database file if you install your application in the Program files folder, you should keep the .sqlite3 file in the appdata folder where your users will always have privileges to modify it.
