If _this_ mathematica is the same as the mathematica I use you could use
the package DatabaseLink which is enclosed in the newer versions. It
does access the databases with JDBC drivers under the hood, but you
don't necessarily need to be exposed to how these JDBC drivers work. I
think if you take an hour or two to read the documentation for
DatabaseLink you will have no problems to get data from a database into
