@Jason I am actually new to CRM development can you share some link of getting start with Custom Action ?
Check this out:
There are a couple things to consider when trying to build out a design to either get or post data to a 3rd party web service. One thing is whether the data you receive from the web service you need to persist to the database. We've built some JScript web resources before where we did not (or based on client requirements could not) persist this data to CRM. This is where the JScript resources would pull the data on load of the page and display them in a custom grid. Here we would also post to the web service upon save or a custom button through JScript. When we wanted to persist data to CRM from a web service we would run a plugin. Examples of this was when we would create a new customer and call out to pull address information or postal code information. Or even when loading a contact record we may want to get updated information from a 3rd party source and save that to CRM for reporting purposes. For these scenarios though nightly integration or real time integration would sometimes be a better choice because it doesn't depend on the user loading the records.
The other thing to consider is the amount of data and time to parse. If its small amounts of data than JScript should work fine and be able to load the page in a timely manner. However, if it's a large amount of data you may consider persisting the data in CRM and do the calculations server side instead of client side.
Hope this helps.
