Unfortunately the answer to your question isn't quiet as straight forward anymore with BES 4.1. In the pre-4.1 days the answer would have been: 'Yes, you need to install MDS [Mobile Data Service]'.
Now in 4.1 MDS actually stands for 'Mobile Data System' which includes some additional components. What use to be 'Mobile Data Service' in the pre-4.1 has now been renamed to 'MDS [Mobile Data System] Connection Service' which gets automatically installed along with the BES. Then it is indeed just a question of web-enabling your databases and accessing them from your BlackBerry Browser icon.
The additional components of MDS [Mobile Data System] allow for the new web-services integration with rich client-side applications (created using MDS Studio).
Makes sense? No? I guess that's just the price of innovation... ;-)
