    Hello,

    is there a way to connect to a "Business Objects" data storage in order
    to retrieve OLAP data?

    For Oracle, you have to use the Oracle OLAP java api, which enable you
    to connect, read meta-data (hierarchies, etc.), perform complex SQL
    request with "simple" java method calls, and convert the result table in
    POJO (Plain Old Java Objects).

    I would like to do the same for "Business Objects". But i can't find
    anything on Google about extracting data, only importing into BO.

    TIA

    That's because BusinessObjects is a reporting tool, not an OLAP
    database. Apart from cached report contents, it doesn't store
    information.
