IMO learning mapping file XML dialects, O/R mapper configuration files 
and so on is to much stuff for the beginning. Let them start with pure 
SQL or poorly abstracted syntax. If that's ESQL, SQLTransformer, or 
Groovy is unimportant IMO. There only must be the possibility.

XML declarations? Probably I don't get the point.

Binding forms directly to databases sounds weird. There are not many use 
cases IMO, maybe questionnaires for most simple inserts. Even reports do 
not show database data directly, do they?
