FileMaker Extra: About the Custom Web Publishing Tools

FileMaker Server Advanced comes with a couple of extremely useful tools for kick-starting your work with FileMaker XSL. These are the CDML Converter and the Site Assistant. They're not installed automatically—you need to install them separately if you want to use them.

The CDML Converter

The CDML Converter is designed to do what its name implies. It does its best to take a set of FileMaker-based Web pages written in CDML (which was the custom Web publishing option in previous versions of FileMaker Pro) and convert these files to a set of XSLT-CWP stylesheets. As of FileMaker Pro 7, CDML is no longer an available Web publishing option for FileMaker, so if you want to use an existing CDML solution with FileMaker 7, you need to convert it somehow, and the CDML Converter is probably the best place to start.
