OpenJump is very simple. There is a Run Database Query in the file menu. Two details:

-Make sure to surround every geometry with ST_Asbinary()
-Rasters do not display native. You have to vectorize them with ST_DumpAsPolygons() or ST_PixelAsPolygons()

A typical OpenJump to display raster:

SELECT ST_AsBinary((gv).geom) geom, (gv).val
FROM (SELECT ST_DumpAsPolygons(rast) gv FROM rastertable) foo

do not do this with big rasters...
