Gadget to Non-Web DB?

Accessing to a REST API-enabled DB seems as straightforward as using any other REST API via a gadget.

However, how is it possible and how do you recommend hitting a non-web (no REST API) DB from a gadget?

Hi Joe,

It is possible to do it, but it isn't recommended for numerous reasons such as security and performance. You would probably want to build a middle application to access the DB and the gadget talks to that application.

Thanx,

Denise

Thanks for the response Denise.

The middleware solutions are not seemingly thin-clients so that detracts from one of the pinnacles behind Finesse.

It is in the name of security that the DB is usually not web-enabled, so it is quite a catch-22!

I agree with you that it makes it not so much a thin-client anymore. Like I said, it is doable, just not suggested.
