Is possible use external databases in an app with personal enviroment version?

  
Hi,

I would like to use data from a external database in an app developed in personal enviroment version, is that possible? If yes, how?

Hi Gonçalo, 

If you have the database exposed as a web service yes, otherwise no. What happens is that you cannot use direct connection or links from your server/database to external databases. Nonetheless, you can use is as any other data provider through webservices or similar technologies.

Thanks for your answer José!
I'm going see if I can do what I want with web services and explore the link you gave me.
I will certainly come with other doubts soon ;)

Thanks.
