I tried different extensions for the Joomla 2.5 version to solve my situation to get datas from an external database. I used it now 2 years on a Joomla 1.5 and the new version of Table JX is still easy to handle.
In 4 minutes I build a new GRID with all features with paging and search possibilities. A must have .... for connecting external datbases.
Thank you very much for the nice work.
