    DB2 == RDBMS...in other words, DB2 is a Relation DataBase Management System. So is MySQL...you can use either...depends on which one meets your requirements...etc.

    As for learning Java....you should learn the core language first....such as syntax, libraries, etc. There are a number of tutorials on Sun Microsystems website...

    As for tools...check out netbeans.org

    As for the time scale...it all depends on your skills, commitment to the project, etc.

    not sure I understand what you mean here

    Desktop applications are built to run on client machines and 9 out of 10 of the times are built to run independently from any client-server architecture.

    Web applications are built on client-server architecture.

    Which is best...it all depends on what you want to achieve....in other words, business requirements etc.

    If you meant which is easier to learn...well...you should start learning from the ground up...and that means you should learn Java first...then move on to building web applications, mobilephone apps etc.
