Integrating Alfresco with external database tables

We're rather newbie in developing with AlFresco, but we're seriously considering now the necessity of implementing AlFresco together with our own database tables so that we can keep track of a series of extra-data we need to present the user with.

We've heard about trigger classes existing in the framework, but are not quite sure on which is the correct approach to integrating our own database tables with AlFresco's. For instance, synchronizing updates in tables from both databases or performing queries on both databases in a single transaction and being able to show our external data to users through Alfresco's GUI. 

Any help will be most welcome. 

Many thanks.
