The documentation lacks examples but an interesting starting point could 
be the cubes tracker/forge. Forge builds on tracker. You will find there 
lots of typical idioms on how this can be achieved.

You can also replace whatever parts if needed.

see http://docs.cubicweb.org/devrepo/vreg.html again for essential APIS 
to handle that (for application objects, i.e: orm entities, views, etc.)
