Selecting a point and sending point ID to a database outside of GIS

Hello folks.

Is there any way to do this with the JavaScript API? I want to select a point, then somehow include the point ID of this point selected in the URL so that I can send it over to another database which will take it and give users more information related to that point.  We are currently doing this with ArcGIS Server DotNet application and our contractor built a database link API to do the Point ID transfer to the other database.  But now, I want to build a thin client that does the same thing.  Does this make any sense?  Any info or guidance will be appreciated.
