JIRA Data in a WebApp

We wish to extract JIRA Data from JIRA Java API and save the data into an Sql Server or any other database

Can we use JIRA Java API in a webapp that lives outside JIRA?

Would appreciate any help

You can call only the JIRA REST API from outside of JIRA.

Can you give more details about what exaclty are you trying to achieve ?

The idea is to use JIRA data and create snapshots of the same, lets say every week. We are creating a web app where we will track JIRA data every week and analyze trends and will setup our customized trend analyzer . So I will have to compare JIRA snapshots from my past week and this week, which I will have in an SQL Server and then create trend reports....

So I plan to design a web app that will use JIRA data and I shall create my own snapshots in a table , lets say using spring and hibernate

Would appreciate an answer on this

Boris's answer pretty much covers it. Use REST to extract the data you need, and store it within your app.

It will NOT be in any sense a "snapshot" - REST doesn't expose everything (only raw issue data really). If you're serious about a snapshot, then you should simply dump the database, or run the xml export (assuming the data is quite small) every week and build up a nice huge pile of data snapshots which you'll need to build data dictionaries for.
