Using FileMaker as a Web Services Source

So far in this chapter, we've mainly discussed how to get data from Web services, into FileMaker. But it's possible to do this the other way around as well. Let's say that you have some order data in FileMaker Pro. Let's also suppose that there's a central mainframe computer that needs to have access to the FileMaker orders, as they're completed.

There are a number of ways to skin this particular cat, but let's suppose for the sake of example that the mainframe system is capable of requesting data from a Web service. In other words, the mainframe can make a request for data over HTTP, and expects to get some form of XML back in return.
