FileMaker Extra: Write Your Own Web Services

We generally think of Web services as being something that someone else has, and that we want access to. But Web services have many other uses as well. They can provide a powerful way to extend the capabilities of your FileMaker application.

For example, suppose you needed to compute a Fourier transform, based on some measured signal data. FileMaker has no built-in facility for such analysis—computing the transform requires complex mathematics. (Well, with enough diligence, you might be able to write a FileMaker script to perform a Discrete Fourier Transform, but its cousin the Fast Fourier Transform requires mathematical operations FileMaker can't perform.)
