There is no UML for showing the flow b/w different technologies. Use any visual representation medium like a flowchart or block diagram in PPT or Visio(anything with Visio gives a feel of being a techie to some ;) )

Class diagrams has nothing do with flow. For more information about realization association http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Class_diagram#Realization.
Are you purposely acting ignorant?

@OP UML Diagrams are divided in two categories. Structural and Behavior Diagrams. Flows are generally shown using Behavior Diagrams => Activity Diagrams,Sequence Diagrams, Communication diagrams, interaction diagrams ( uml 2) etc.
The flow you are trying to show is generally not shown using UML. You can use some tool like MS Visio, if you really want to show something which is not available in standard UML notation and use your own notations.
Good luck.

You can use Class diagrams to show the static behavior of your system while activity diagram or sequence diagram to represent the dynamic behavior. Also ER diagram could be used to represent your database structure.

This can not be done with UML diagrams.

UNIX is a computer operating system.

Java is a computer programming language.

A database is a computerized data storage tool.

The Unified Modeling Language is a visual language typically used for documenting object-oriented software designs.
