We have a small dilemma:
1. Our brand new Alma system provides access to a bunch of data via RESTful API. It’s on The Cloud so we’re not going to be getting direct access to the database anytime soon.
2. We have an existing application that would be more efficient if it could get that data, but which only uses ODBC. (I’m told other available drivers are:
- Microsoft Jet 4.0 OLE
- Microsoft Office
- Microsoft OLE DB Provider
- Microsoft Datashape
- OLE DB Provider
- SQL Server Native Client 10.0)
Does anyone know if there’s any middleware out there that could make these two things talk to each other, or do we give this up as a “Would have been nice, but <shrug>”?
