WEB BROADCASTING SHIPS 100% JAVA-FREE WEB FM 4.0 FOR FILEMAKER PRO

MAJOR NEW VERSION ADDS SUPPORT FOR EASY-TO-USE, INTERNET STANDARD
TEMPLATE FILES WITH NO NEED TO LEARN YET ANOTHER MARKUP LANGUAGE

"JUST SAY NO" TO CONFUSING, INCOMPATIBLE, PROPRIETARY MARKUP [/TAGS]

Internet World, Los Angeles CA -- March 12, 1998 -- Web Broadcasting
Corporation today announces the release of WEB FM 4.0. WEB FM 4.0 is a
plug-in to popular Mac OS web servers such as WebSTAR, Quid Pro Quo,
WebTEN, and AppleShare IP that enables FileMaker Pro developers to
quickly and easily build wicked fast, truly dynamic and interactive online
database applications for the World Wide Web or corporate Intranet.

WEB FM's extensive feature list mirrors that of FileMaker Pro 4.0 for
Windows 95, Windows NT, Windows 3.1 and Mac OS from FileMaker Inc. It fully
supports relational and portal fields; browsing, sorting, creating and
editing database records; even running ScriptMaker scripts via a web
browser interface.

WEB FM is optimized for top performance and is compatible with either
FileMaker Pro 3.0 or 4.0 on the PowerPC or 68K Mac OS platforms. With
accelerated database performance measured in fractions of a second, WEB FM
is capable of handling the higher traffic web sites requiring tens of
thousands of database transactions per day.

NEW TEMPLATE FILE SUPPORT
WEB FM 4.0 introduces support for easy-to-use Template files. Template
files are Internet standard HTML documents void of confusing, incompatible,
and proprietary markup [/tags]. For this reason a webmaster need not learn
yet another markup language, and Template documents are fully compatible
with all existing web page editors and client browsers.

A new highly intelligent parsing algorithm in WEB FM automatically selects
appropriate pop-up/pull-down menu items and automatically checks
appropriate radio button or checkbox fields in a Template document using
database record information. A single context-sensitive [field name] token
may be used throughout a Template document to dynamically insert cell data
where desired, auto-populate pop-up/pull-down menus, and auto-replicate
radio button and checkbox fields from database value lists, all with no
tags required!

NEW PLUG-IN PROCESSORS
WEB FM 4.0 introduces a new plug-in architecture for database-level add-on
Filter and Server-Side Include Processors such as Maxum Development's
NetCloak 2.5. Processors are separate web server plug-ins supporting the
PIXO ("Plug-In Cross-Over") API standard for web server plug-ins to
communicate and cooperate.

NEW RECORD-LEVEL SECURITY
WEB FM 4.0 significantly enhances features for record-level security. A
fully revised FindUser command now supports most Find command features, but
with record-level user authentication requirements. This means users can
flexibly Find and modify their own, and only their own, records in
databases where the permission to Browse records is disabled. Moreover, a
client Cookie value may now also be used in place or absence of a valid
password when finding or updating database records.

NEW BUNDLED SOLUTIONS
WEB FM 4.0 includes GOT COOKIES?, a new web server tool for easy,
feature-rich "cookie" management. Cookies are useful for state management
and electronic commerce applications when adding, updating, or searching
for database records.

WEB FM 4.0 includes FM@iler, a ready-to-use program for email archival via
Emailer 2.0 to a new searchable web database.
