I am new to ESRI GeoProcessing (GP) services so please excuse the naive question. I have an FLEX application running off of ArcGIS Server. I need to push data from the ArcGIS Server to an analytic server that calculates all sorts of interesting metrics using R that I cannot do within ArcGIS.
So my question is this: Can a GP accept user inputs (e.g. run on these 5 points) and then push a foreign key to another server for further processing ? The other server would do its magic and then send the results (and foreign key) back to ArcGIS server which displays to the user.
Can someone point me to some resources on the web I can read up on this ?
