Real-time interfaces from sales force to client applications

Anyone have information on how to use sfdc to connect real-time into a client network to retrieve data that would be displayed to a user. 


Does the "client" application have an API you can reach via HTTP from SFDC into that system?   If so, yes it  can be done.   Real-time has some implications to it, but you could create refresh logic to get refreshed data from the client.   The data could be displayed via custom VisualForce and custom Controller.




I don't want to have to replicate the data into sfdc, so I need to just make a real time call via HTTPS into my network to retrieve and display the current data.  I think you are saying that the custom VisualForce and custom Controller would be the route to take in that instance. 


scheck,   This is exactly what virtcoud is saying.


We've done a lot of these type of integrations over HTTPS from APEX if you'd like some assistance, contact me @  or
