Lotus no longer offers the Connector for JD Edwards, so that limits what you can do with LEI/DECS to backend data access (most likely DB400). Alternatively, you could write a custom LSX that does specifically what you need. The first option is dangerous, because you bypass all the application logic in JD Edwards and risk breaking the referential integrity of the database (i.e. your data becomes garbage). The second is painful and expensive, because you need C/C++ skills and the JD Edwards API is a challenge to work with (so I've heard). However, check out Corning Data Services (www.corningdata.com). They are both a Lotus and JD Edwards partner. If you do, be sure to say "Hi!" to Mark Mendelson for me. Good luck!
