[MD1] Web FM 3.0 for FileMaker Pro 3.0

WEB BROADCASTING CORP. SHIPS WEB FM 3.0 FOR FILEMAKER PRO 3.0 FOR MAC OS

WEB SERVER PLUG-IN BRINGS INCREDIBLY FAST AND POWERFUL DATABASE
PUBLISHING TO FILEMAKER PRO 3.0 POWERED WEB SITES

Palo Alto, CA -- February 6, 1997 -- Web Broadcasting Corporation has
announced the release of WEB FM 3.0. WEB FM 3.0 is a screaming fast,
powerful, full-featured web server plug-in that links Claris Corp.'s
FileMaker Pro 3.0 for Mac OS database application to the World Wide Web
or a corporate Intranet. WEB FM enables FileMaker Pro 3.0 developers to
quickly and easily build fast, dynamic, interactive, and reliable
database solutions with a web browser interface.

The 3.0 release of WEB FM replaces the previous CGI versions with support
for Quarterdeck Corporations new WebSTAR API (W*API) plug-in standard.
The W*API provides FileMaker Pro 3.0 customers with a faster and more
efficient mechanism for linking their databases with Mac OS web servers.

ACCELERATED PERFORMANCE MEASURED IN TICKS, NOT SECONDS!

WEB FM 3.0 is a 100% rewrite in low-level C and runs native on both
PowerPC and 68K Mac OS web servers for optimum performance. Customers can
now expect accelerated FileMaker Pro 3.0 performance on the web measured
in ticks, not seconds, with database search times in as little as 15 to
30 ticks (1 tick = 1/60th of a second). WEB FM 3.0 is now capable of
handling the higher traffic web sites requiring tens of thousands of
database transactions per day.

"We are very pleased in providing the highest performing web server
plug-in available for FileMaker Pro 3.0." said Eric Bickford, President &
CEO at Web Broadcasting Corp. "FileMaker Pro 3.0 customers can now expect
to handle tens of thousands of database transactions per day from their
web sites."

Here is just a sampling of what customers are saying about the speed of
WEB FM 3.0:

"It is faster than a speeding bullet!"
"The plug-in performance is staggering!"
"I was blown away by the speed!"

EXTENSIVE FEATURE LIST MIRRORS THAT OF FILEMAKER PRO 3.0

WEB FM's extensive feature list mirrors that of FileMaker Pro 3.0, with
support for relational and portal fields; browsing, sorting, creating and
editing database records; even running ScriptMaker scripts. Here are just
a few of the advanced features new to the 3.0 version of WEB FM and/or
not found in other products:

-- Accelerated Find performance of 150 to 200% over WEB FM 2.0.
-- 30 to 40% faster execution of ScriptMaker scripts over other products.
-- Improved support for adding or modifying multiple portal fields in one
shot.
-- Added support for custom http response headers for URL redirects, etc.
-- Added support for using Netscape cookies in online shopping cart
solutions.
-- Added support for field-level data validation before creating a new
record.
-- Enabled customizable links for the [next] and [prev] subset of found
records.
-- New remote administration (AppleTalk or TCP/IP) of plug-in settings.
-- Enhanced security options with database-specific administrator
security, task-level (browse, create, edit) security, field-level
security, and record-level security.
-- Includes Translation Plugin 1.0, a new web server plug-in for
performing customizable MacRoman to ISO Latin character translations.
-- Includes TAG FM (in beta), a new utility for linking databases with
drag and drop ease to popular web page creation tools.
-- Compatible with PICT FM for serving images on the web stored in
FileMaker Pro 3.0 container fields.
-- Now distributed as a retail package with a new and thorough 71 page
User's Guide.
