    Default Separate querying (DB) from report display (presentation)?

    I would like to use ETL to retrieve data from the data source, but I want to display it using my own HTML code. Is there any way I can separate the DB layer from the presentation layer without using the Report Designer?

    Yes, use CDA as your datasource. It is a REST service that generates JSON and XML and as long as your tool can handle JSON or XML as input and can do HTTP calls, then you will get the data and you are free to do what you like with it.
