The idea of DECS is that you set up a correspondence between a Notes form and a relational table, so that when you create or update the document a corresponding relational row is automatically created or updated. So the classes you need are NotesDocument, NotesItem, and so on, to create a new Notes document.
If you only wanted to update a relational table programmatically, and not have to have a corresponding Notes document, then you don't need DECS or DCRs -- you need the LC LSX. Read the LEI Redbook for a chapter on the LC LSX.
