The DatabaseSelectAction is not meant to be a general database
access. You cannot specify arbitrary where clause for example. Just
retrieve a single row from a table. Of course it could be changed to
not use "WHERE" if no keys are present. But how often do you really
want to retrieve _all_ rows from a database table?

Results are stored in request attributes (_not_ parameters!). In
addition, results have a prefix

Maybe it would be worthwhile to look into the esql logicsheet.
