using the database

I am new to episerver an not sure how to handle databases. I need to integrate one of our products with episerver. It consists of a couple of user controls and uses a MS SQL database. Are there any general database methods in episerver that i should use, methods to get and set data in the episerver database or should i just add my own tables to the database, or a additional database, and use the database methods i already have?

I would recomend you to use an additional database with your old code. That will make it more safe regarding future EPiServer upgrades. But if you wan't to integrate and use EPi's API start by inherit from EPiServer.DataAccess.DataAccessBase. /HAXEN
