If you're going to misuse so many terms in one query, you'll need to 
supply some code, and tell us in what way it doesn't serve your needs.

In the meantime,

1) Post a query by addressing it to "tutor at python.org," not by replying 
to  a digest message.  And if you must reply to a digest message, at 
least change the subject.  Thanks, though for deleting the digest content.

2) How do you expect to delete the instance of the application?  It's a 
funny term, but the only meaning I can come up with is you want to kill 
the application's process.

3) What's a table object?  If table is the name of your class, it really 
ought to be uppercase.

4) "from within the class" --  I'm guessing you mean from within a 
method of the class.

5) "then it becomes accessible" -- perhaps you mean inaccessible.

6) Please tell us the version of Python you're using and the operating 
system you're running on.
