InfoPath2010 and Sharepoint 2010 integration

Hello,

I'm very new to using InfoPath but we recently upgraded to SharePoint Enterprise 2010 and we would really like to take advantage of the new InfoPath Form Services that's available with this version of SharePoint. I need to know if it's possible to build a form that gets data from a Microsoft SQL Server, and also when that form is submitted it will need to populate a table on our Microsoft SQL Server. Is this possible when done through SharePoint?

If it is, what would be the first steps that I need to take? I thought it was as simple as building a form in InfoPath2010 and just publishing it to SharePoint but I get the feeling that I need to upload some type of data connections to SharePoint Central Administration?

 Thanks in advance.

Yes, it is very possible to interact with SQL using InfoPath as the front end. See if this link helps out any:

You can build a IP form which is based on a database table and then host the form in SharePoint but this can't be browser based.

Since you have SP 2010 you should look at BCS. This links sharepoint lists directly to tables, it can be setup in SharePoint designer.  Then you can edit and insert data.  You also can customize the default infopath form, which is browser based.

I think this is what you are looking for.
