I want to create a Graph Obect (which will have fields for titles, x-axis heading, y-axis heading... etc) that uses an external database to pull the data.
Can I simply mix in some normal php database calls into my model?
I will probably make an ExternalDatabase class (similar to ExternalAuthenticator)... but just wondered if anyone had tried this before, and what caveats I should be aware of.
Also, does MS Sql Server work as the primary db for SS? I read that there was some work going on with PDO.

To answer the second part of my post about MS Sql Server... it seems that SS does support mssql. I found some info at http://doc.silverstripe.com/doku.php?id=database-support.
I'm still curious about any suggestions for pulling data from an external database.

For all those others interested... this post looks like a valuable place to start:

Did you find a proper way of achieving what you want ? I'm going to need this in the near future as well (connecting to another external database to fetch data for use in Silverstripe)....
