Sync back to MYSQL from SF

Hi all:
   Does anyone know if it is possible to sync back to MYSQL database to check something and bring it back to salesforce from salesforce. Like if I create a button called sync. I would want it to go back to MYSQL check it see if it there and then send a message to or answers to ...
The simplest way to do this would be to create a web page in the environment of your choice that talks to MySQL using a standard Salesforce / Web app pattern; which involves linking to or embedding that page within the Salesforce UI, and allows for two way communication between the systems.

I suggest creating a (soap-based) web service that can be accessed by, say, an S-Control that you connect to your 'Synch' button. Build the web service to access your MySQL database and return data to your S-Control. Your S-Control can then save it in salesforce, etc.
