My Ques - Which version of MySQL should I download to use with Eclipse for Java programming on my Mac OS X Mavericks?

I have recently enrolled in a course to learn Java. I have installed Eclipse on my Macbook Pro (OS X 10.9 Mavericks) and it works fine. Now, the thing is, we have got to the part where I need to start using databases with my Java programs using JDBC-ODBC.

I understand that MS SQL Server is not available on the Mac platform. I assume the next best alternative is MySQL.

When I go to the MySQL webpage to download, I see quite many different types -

My question is, which one should I download that will be suitable to my needs? I am totally in the dark about this as I am new to DBMS and the Mac OS as well. Any suggestions will be highly helpful.
