Alphen aan den Rijn, The Netherlands, April 1st, 2003–Troi Automatisering
today announced the availability of the 1.1 version of the Troi URL Plug-in
for FileMaker Pro 6.

What is Troi URL Plug-in?

Troi URL Plug-in can help you fill in forms on the Internet, all from
FileMaker Pro. It also retrieves data from any HTTP URL. You can:

– use the POST command to fill in a web form and retrieve the result
directly in FileMaker
– use the GET command to retrieve data
– use a secure connection (HTTPS) using SSL
– get access to password protected web pages
– encode text into HTTP format
– send cookies with a request
– show a custom progress dialog during the retrieval (Mac OS only)

Peter Baanen, company president, states: “Cookies and cross platform HTTPS
support were the main features still lacking from Troi URL Plug-in. With
this release you can finally have your secure cookies and that’s no joke!”

Suggested Uses

Troi URL plug-in allows you to:
– fill in forms on web sites or your intranet
– get online data like stock quotes, weather reports, etc.
– automatically add information to listings and online databases
– search the Internet for terms or other specific items (like in Sherlock)
– get the time of your city

All these features also work in a runtime solution.

What is new in version 1.1?

Troi URL Plug-in 1.1 adds these new functions and features:

– Added support for cookies. On Mac OS and Mac OS X, this is done
through the new TURL-SetCookies function. On Windows cookies are
handled automatically by the operating system.
– Added support for secure connections (HTTPS) using SSL on Windows.
(Mac OS already supported HTTPS).
– (Mac OS only) Fixed a bug which could crash FileMaker, if the URL
did not exist and the progress dialog was shown.
– (Windows only) Fixed a problem where the plug-in would not return
all data for a password protected web page.
– Updated the user guide and example files.

This plug-in opens new possibilities to get all sorts of data from
the Internet. We invite you to test drive the new functions and see
what you can do with it!
