iApp Server for FileMaker Pro Now Shipping for MacApplication server enables custom web publishing with FileMaker Pro 7 (February 03, 2005)
macweb.com announced today the immediate availability of iApp Server 1.0 for FileMaker Pro 7. iApp Server 1.0 for FileMaker is a brand new application server middleware tool and installs as an Apache 1.3 module on Mac OS X. A plug-in version for 4D WebSTAR V is coming soon.
iApp Server 1.0 for FileMaker enables custom web publishing with FileMaker Pro 7 client. Use it to quickly and easily build dynamic, database-driven web sites. By using innovative technology like Server-Side Rendering (SSR) and Saved Actions, iApp Server successfully migrates the ease-of-use database developers know and love about FileMaker Pro to web development. iApp Server's feature list mirrors that of the new FileMaker Pro 7 with support for relational and portal fields; browsing, sorting, creating and editing database records; even running ScriptMaker scripts via any custom web browser interface.
iApp Server 1.0 for FileMaker supports easy-to-use HTML template files as a native file format. Most template files are Internet standard HTML documents devoid of confusing, incompatible, and proprietary markup. For this reason a webmaster need not learn yet another markup language, and template documents are compatible with web page editors and client browsers. Database [field] and [variable] entities may be used throughout a template document to insert dynamic data where desired.
Server-Side Rendering (SSR) is the dynamic, server-side rewrite of HTML form elements given backend database or variable data. This includes:
- Automatic selection of select menu options.
- Automatic selection of checkbox and radio button input fields.
- Automatic population of input fields of type "text".
Saved Actions make it very easy to build and maintain dynamic, database- driven web sites with FileMaker Pro 7. Referenced by name, Saved Actions are pre-defined data source calls that query or modify a target database table.
iApp Server 1.0 for FileMaker with support for 5 concurrent users is priced at $495 and distributed as an electronic software download only. To download a free trial version please visit www.macweb.com.
