I have a doubt regarding apex develompent in a professional edition.
I know that apex isn't available with this license, however in this (http://www.salesforce.com/us/developer/docs/packagingGuide/Content/dev_packages_apex_ge_pe.htm) page is written that i can use apex for web services callouts:
Using Apex to make Web service callouts is allowed in GE/PE. For instance, if you’re planning to make a Web service callout to an external Web service, as long as the managed package is authorized, these classes will function in GE/PE.
In my project I need to retrieve data from an external web service and show them in salesforce. Is this possibile in a professional edition with apex? In particular I would like to create a custom controller, that will retrieve the data from external web service, and attach it to a visualforce page to show the data retrieved.
If I cannot use apex I'll create a simple visualforce page and then load the data from the external web service through jQuery.
