Hi Cesar ...

I'm not trying to tell about login manager, because I'm still trying. But I
can tell you about how to use RDBMS server and playing with data. You need a
database adatper(I'm using ZODB, there are several.....you can choose as you
like) and ZSQL method. Connect database from your control panel and mention
the same in ZODB database connection, now use ZSQL method for retrieving the
data and for any other SQL inputs. You can use Z Search Interface also for

Good Luck,
Chandra Sekhar.P
