There is a middle ground between a full-fledged O/R mapping layer and 
raw JDBC calls. You could, for instance, try Spring's JDBC template 
classes [1], as they take care of the tedious, repetitive and 
error-prone, like setting up a connection, managing transactions, 
handling errors and properly releasing resources.

An advantage of using Spring is also that it supports Hibernate and JDO 
out-of-the-box, so graduating from JDBC to an O/R persistence layer 
might be easier.

DISCLAIMER: I've never used Spring, just read its documentation and I 
really like what I've seen so far. Might be using it for a future 
project, though.
