    It's the wrong question, you must ask:
    - What db has the better/most complete/most functional/most stable jdbc driver?
    - What is the best jsp platform?

    An application made with jsp relies on:
    - OS
    - Java vistual machine
    - Web server
    - JSP/Servlet engine
    - JDBC driver
    - Database

    so it's not possible to give a simple answer.
    I can add that the Firebird driver is in development stage, while the others are more mature.

    But the point is: why don't you like MySQL, or what limitations make you look for alternatives?

    JSP can work with a number of databases. Just make sure you have the driver for the particular database you're using.
