Seriously look into flow as well.  Right now though the current trend 
has been to not directly out of the box provide raw jdbc functions from 
the flow (that is, without an O/R (object/relational db mapping) layer - 
see the samples) so you may not find that easily understood if you don't 
want to get into O/R too.  IIRC, the wiki, the "official" docs, 
javadocs, and especially the samples, provide a pretty good start at 
working with the database actions.  I'd look at the "Modular" database 
actions.  They are  named that because they provide support for "Input 
Modules" which may not seem important, but it's a good thing and they 
have seen the most active development.
