Depends on the mocl-SQL XMLish language...and I, for one, am not going
to try and find "XML Integrator"'s DTD.

Then you're better off with Java. Java is much better at being a hot
technology, and if this is the motivation, then it's better the students
will not know how to program in Java than for them to not know how to
program in Python.
[My immediate take on XML+Web+Database is to use the database to
store a counter, to use the xml for <counter value="5"/> stringification
and destringification and then to show that counter. Or maybe I should
not say that, because someone might implement it...]
