Instant Web Publishing—An Overview

Instant Web Publishing (IWP) has been a feature of FileMaker Pro since its introduction years ago in version 4.0. In its earlier incarnations, IWP was never quite the robust tool that one hoped it would be. Its main benefits were that it was utterly simple to enable and configure, and that it turned FileMaker layouts into Web pages without any CGI programming or HTML coding whatsoever. There were, however, many limitations, particularly with the number of layouts you could use and with script behavior, making IWP unsuitable for all but the most basic of Web applications.

In FileMaker Pro 7, IWP retains its amazing ease of setup and use, but for the first time, it has enough features and flexibility that it can be used as part of a serious business application. We think that the new IWP will revolutionize the way that FileMaker Pro systems are developed and deployed. Whether you're new to FileMaker Pro development or just haven't looked at IWP in a while, it's well worth your time to investigate and learn about this tool.
