DataHandler - abstract data handler


This module is the abstract DataHandler class used by the web application
framework. A data handler is a wrapper to retrieve a certain data source. 

Using a data handler is done by requesting the handle from the application.
Depending on the type of data this may be a PPO database or a FIG/FIGV
