iApp Server beta for FMPro
Macweb.co today released for FileMaker Pro 7. The new application server middleware tool installs as an Apache 1.3 module on Mac OS X, enabling custom web publishing with FileMaker Pro 7 client. It can be used to quickly and easily build dynamic, database-driven web sites with support for relational and portal fields; browsing, sorting, creating and editing database records; and running ScriptMaker scripts. iApp Server supports easy-to-use HTML template files as a native file format. Server-Side Rendering (SSR) is the dynamic, server-side rewrite of HTML form elements given backend database or variable data, while 'Saved Actions' make it very easy to build and maintain dynamic, database-driven web sites with FileMaker Pro 7. It will be available for $500, with a plug-in version for 4D WebSTAR V expected soon.
