Importing Data into a database via Restful Web Service

Importing Data into a database via Restful Web Service

  
Please I would like to find out if it is possible to Import or Download Remote Data from a Database into a Local Entity via the Preparation using  a Restful Webservice
Why would it not be possible?

as long as you can consume a restful webservice nothing stands in your way to place the data in entities...

Kindly send me a tutorial on how to do this.
I have done it already. Thanks.
