I don't know off hand the exact mechanics. The original
Database*Actions use inconsistent prefixing. It is documented in the
2.0.3 docs.

A *big* problem with your descriptor file is that you have a *key* in
a *values* section. Thus it will be ignored. You may need to prefix
the @param with "org.apache.cocoon.acting.AbstractDatabaseAction:"

Please consider using the DatabaseActions from the modular
package. They are available with the 2.1 snapshots and for 2.0.3 in
the scratchpad area.
