connection to mssql 2008 from sap on unix (solaris 10)


good morning all,

i want to make sure i am reading this right, but i do not think i can connect to a mssql server (2008) from sap if sap is using unix.

1601608 - How to access an external Microsoft SQL Server database

If your system comprises solely of ABAP stack-based servers running on Unix / Linux platforms you can neither use UDConnect nor DBCON. Why? Because UDConnect requires at least one Java-stack based SAP Application Server (regardless of the operating system) and DBCON requires at least one Windows-based SAP Application Server.

if this is the case, how would a company connect to a sql server and extract data and use in a abap program? ftp?

any help is appreciated.
