How can we get external database data (SQLserver, MS Access) from ABAPs? Can we use RFCs or BAPIs?
There are several ways to do this, however I will point you to the Java technique. The JCo API comes with an implementation of an RFC server. This server allows you to register a Java object as an external program in an RFC destination. Your ABAP program can use this RFC destination like any other call function routine to retrieve data from an external datastore. See my tip on the JCo RFC server at SearchSAP.com.
