iApp Server 1.0 Beta for FileMaker Pro 7 Now Available for Mac OS X
New Application Server Enables Custom Web Publishing with FileMaker Pro 7
Palo Alto, CA — September 7, 2004 — MACWEB.COM announced today the
immediate availability of iApp Server 1.0 Beta 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(TM)
(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(TM) (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
iApp Server 1.0 for FileMaker pricing will be $495 and distributed as an
electronic software download only. To download the most recent Beta version
