Chapter 21. Instant Web Publishing > Designing for IWP Deployment

Designing for IWP Deployment

The previous section discussed how to enable IWP at the application level and how to set a file so that users can access it via IWP. Although this is enough for IWP to function, there are usability issues to consider as well. Not all layouts and scripts translate well to the Web, and some FileMaker features simply don't work via IWP. This section discusses the constraints that you, as a developer, must be aware of when deploying an IWP solution. We also discuss a number of development techniques that can make an IWP solution feel more like a typical Web application.

Constraints of IWP

Most of the core functionality of FileMaker Pro is available to IWP users. This includes being able to view layouts, find and edit data, and perform scripts attached to buttons. There are, however, a number of FileMaker features that are not available to IWP users. It's important to keep these in mind, especially when trying to port an already existing solution to the Web.
