Kick off stored procedure and use the result

We want to use data from outside our Mendix App to display additional information within Mendix. Our best guess to achieve this was either to use a stored procedure which is triggered with a button/microflow and retrieves the data into Mendix temporarily, or use Mendix' OQL, but since we are not that familiar with the latter we'd rather call a stored procedure. Is that possible, and if so, how? Regards MArius

So this data is within some other database? There's no standard mechanism for this though you could maybe expose the data as a webservice, however it is possible to create a Java action in which you can just setup the connection to the external database yourself and call the stored procedure there.
