I am giving ATM a course about cocoon (that is as well the reason I had
not much time for forrest) and on thing I show in this course is how to
use iBatis in a javaflow.

Using iBatis makes it dead simple using different database and all the
queries you want. Like Ross said "I'm not about to go into detail now"
because my testing weekend is beginning.
