Please, please write this up as a tutorial. The less it assumed the 
reader knows about other persistence layers the better. I'm coming from 
a PHP/perl background so I used to just throw my database calls in the 
code. I'm putting all that stuff into separate database beans now but 
I'd like to learn even better abstraction techniques.

I think it would be great now that Torque has been spun out of Turbine 
that its docs were struts/turbine neutral. But a separate tutorial 
somewhere would be great too.

Thanks, John
