Hi, from what I understand, you want to customize the case from to save all date into the database, and be able to retreive this data when you open the case.
To do so, you don't need to use web resource. Just customize the form by adding elements on the form (fields, tabs, ect.).
You can also access the content of cases from reports (use the report wizard available in Dynamics CRM to create record that retreive data from cases).

Thanks for your response but the case form attributes alone will not provide me the functionality i need and i can achive this with a custom HTML Form.But i dont think the contents of the form will be saved to the database.also can i create crm form fields on the fly based on the input of the user.for example if the user chooses a perticular option from an option set, a new text field will be created.

I will suggest best approach is: You create all the attributes on Case entity. You can add 1:N or N:1 relationship to add custom relationships with other entities.
Depending on the user input, you can hide or show attributes on the form. This is more easy and structured way to handle information.

Suggestion of CRMdevlpr is correct, however, if it really doesn't solve your problem then you can use a HTML form placed in the Case Form using iFrame.
Then you have 2 choices:
1. You can save the data from your HTML Form in a sepparate database so that you can access it later. (you can link the HTML Form data with the Case Form data with a CaseID).
