Existing inventory system integration

OK so have in my mind post about Part 2 assignment discussions, I am not quite sure if I can consult this...

Lets say we have to ask existing inventory system about some information. There is nothing said about the system except, that we send some request data to and get some response data from it.

Can I assume, that the system is connected with its RDBMS, and integrate on the data level - directly with that RDBMS, or this is too far simplification?

I must consult the inventory system if an item is available. I don't know anything about the inventory system - if it is written in Java language, or further with EJBs, if it is accessible via some messaging system (to integrate via JMS), or even if it provides connector (to integrate via JCA).
But it likely has an RDBMS to persist data.

Can I assume that the inventory system has an RDBMS? And if integration directly with an RDBMS is a good decision?

I believe there has to be some specification on how you connect to it. .

Why do you care if it has RDBMS or not, when you have use the system as black box

Seems like a webservice is a good candidate to talk to this system if it will let you

Does a DAO approach solve the requirement?

I think Krzysztof tried to start generically, however this topic has become far too specific in my opinion. It is now closed.
