If you want to start this yourself, you probably want to code in Java
to vanilla JDBC, for two reasons:

1. Most decent XML tools are in Java -- it's a nice turn-around to
   see people asking "is this tool available in C++" rather than "is
   this tool available in Java"?  Of course, Perl is catching up
   fast... (I use Perl for quick batch processing scripts and Java for
   larger applications).

2. JDBC will let people put exactly as much power as they need on the
   back end, from MSQL or PostgreSQL (or, if they're masochists,
   Access) for light-weight work, to Oracle, Sybase, DBII, etc. for
   heavy-grade stuff.

All the best,
