Is it possible to connect a web service to a report?

I am almost new to openERP this is more a question of the "possibilities and limitations" than a "how to"

For one of the tasks I have to do I need to be able to retrive data from a web service and use it in a report. There are 2 scenarios I need to make.

1- Retrive the current exchange of a currency from a web service and apply it to all the values I am about to display that come from a custom OpenERP module

2- Retrive data from a web service (lets say the weather) and insert it into a report.

Would this be possible to make in OpenERP 7? Thanks for any orientation

Yes, you can make a module which does it, because with Python (the programming language openERP is written in), has the opportunity to connect to web services. When the web service changes some settings, you might have to redo your module, if it is setup badly.

it might also be useful to store the current exchange value, because openERP does support multi currency. Other people might be interested in that part of your module.
