application to application data integration

i have a situation where i want to read data from custom objects of a different application. is the data from custom objects of other applications  visible?


For instance, i have a custom object say A which i am delivering as a managed package. a customer who installs my package also installs a managed package from a different vendor who has an object B.

Now i want to map columns between B and A  and ultimately move the data from object B into my own object A. The definition of object A and object B could obviously be different and there perhaps needs to be some column->column mapping involved.

I would like to do this on an ongoing basis. 

I dont know the definition of object B upfront and hence cannot hardcode the columns of B into my app.



Are there any existing solutions which allow to map and move data between objects within salesforce.


You could use Dynamic SOQL
