Batch info from an Oracle database

I am new to Event Frames and will appreciate if you could give me some opinions on how to use Event Frames for the following setup.


We have a system that consists of an Oracle database and a PI server. 
The batch control system is logging all batch information into the Oracle database. The PI server contains only alarms, events and continuous data.


We would prefer not to have to copy the batch information redundantly into the PI server.


Is there a way to pull batch information directly from the Oracle database into the PI server by means of Event Frames in order to avoid copying other batch information to the PI server?


We would like to have the batch information on the PI server in order to be able to use batchview and other batch controls (e.g.  in a .NET WPF application). Are there any plans regarding the batch controls being able to get batch information from external databases? If so, from what version of the batch controls?
