    You can exactly do what you need via a BW "db connect" source system;

    For details see:

    If your BW system is rel. 3.5 or higher, you should use UD Connect for the extraction from an external (Non-SAP) database.

    You can find a how-to-paper explaining the steps to configure the JDBC-connection.

    UDC supports every database that can be connected via JDBC and has less restrictions than DBConnect. View or table don't have to be named with capitals and the length of fieldnames is not restricted to 16 letters.
