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.
