FileMaker Extra: Converting Web-Enabled Databases

If your existing solutions are Web-enabled, then you have a few additional concerns when migrating to FileMaker Pro 7. The Web capabilities of FileMaker Pro 7 are considerably different from previous versions; your migration plan depends mainly on the technology you used to Web-enable your solution.

Instant Web Publishing

No Instant Web Publishing (IWP) configuration options are retained during conversion of a solution to FileMaker Pro 7. IWP is so greatly improved in FileMaker Pro 7 that the previous configuration options are irrelevant and unnecessary. Where you were limited to a handful of layouts and themes before, IWP now has a status area that is very similar to that in FileMaker Pro itself, and it allows a user to potentially access any layout in a file. More than 70 script steps are IWP compatible (compared to about a dozen before), making IWP a very powerful and flexible Web technology. Even though no IWP settings are preserved during conversion, if you used IWP in your previous solution, you'll be up and running again within a matter of minutes.
