When using a datasource is it best to have one class that does all database access or is it best to have a seperate object for each type of request to database(update,delete,etc).

It's mostly a matter of personal preference. I like to have one class for each query or update with the common connection stuff in a superclass. That way the database classes don't get huge. If you only have a couple queries, it probably doesn't matter either way.
