Exporting data from Notes into SQL server

Do you know how to export data and images from Lotus Notes into the SQL Server? I am mostly interested in exporting attached images to the SQL Server.
Exporting data is simple. You can use ODBC or JDBC to write code that uses SQL to put the export the data to SQL Server. The images might be a little trickier if the images are file attachments stored in a rich text field. You can use the NotesRichTextItem class in conjunction with the NotesEmbeddedObject class to get a handle on the attached files and extract them to the file system. At that point, you'll need to decide if you want store them in a BLOB field in the database or just put a URL to the file in the database. Hope that helps.
