I don't know much about the ModularDatabaseActions, but would a 
ModularDatabaseComponent be much more powerful or much easier to use 
than a ScriptableDatabaseComponent?

I'm thinking of something similar to the existing ScriptGenerator in 
the BSF block, using Groovy scripts to let the user implement  the 
details of database queries and result set formatting. I don't know 
about what kind of interface you're thinking about for the database 
component though, did you think about it already?

I hope I'm not being too loud about Groovy, but when I see the absolute 
coolness of the GroovySql syntax [1], combined with the responsiveness 
of the Groovy developers, it is hard for me to refrain from pushing it 
as hard as I can ;-)


[1] - look at the GroovyMarkup 
example down the page, we're very close to having this in the BSF block
