Web Publishing

A FileMaker database can be deployed to Web users in several ways. One is to simply export data as either HTML or XML so that it can be statically accessed through a Web server. For dynamic interaction with your database, the deployment options are Instant Web Publishing (IWP) and Custom Web Publishing (CWP).

Both FileMaker Pro client and FileMaker Server 7 Advanced can provide access to databases via IWP. FileMaker Pro supports up to 5 concurrent IWP connections; FileMaker Server 7 Advanced supports up to 100. In both cases, setup is trivial. With IWP, your existing FileMaker layouts are dynamically rendered as Web pages. Most scripts will function correctly as well, meaning that designing a solution for IWP deployment requires no Web programming skills. Because of the browser restrictions for using IWP, we don't recommend using IWP for public Web sites. It's a more proper deployment option for remote users who would otherwise be connecting to your databases via a slow FileMaker Pro client connection.
