"Database" is such a broad term. I assume you are referring to a relational database system*. In that case, you will need to "map" the domain model to and from the relational model. There are various documented architectural patterns to accomplish this.

A few notable ones are:

Active Record Pattern (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Active_record_pattern)
Table Data Gateway Pattern (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Table_data_gateway)
Object-Relational Mapping (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Object-relational_mapping)

That should get you started. Have at look through those and feel free to ask more specific questions.

*Other database systems require different approaches.
