Since problems have been reported with FMS and installed Java versions, please be careful with Java and FMS using this tutorial. There are warnings in the tutorial below.

If you want to start using micro-services in FMP, consider Python and the super simple framework: Flask. Below is about the simplest micro-service you can write.   NOTE: this service example below isn't intended to be "production ready"-- as you'd certainly have much more error handling and other code. Instead, the example code below is just a…

cURL Specification: https://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc3986.txt     Getting started with the new cURL options is quite daunting and a steep learning curve.   As there seems to be no good source about the purpose of the various FileMaker cURL options, I am starting this document to fill that gap - based on the ETS-info from FMI + my own internet…

FileMaker 16 introduced a collection of built-in functions for manipulating data serialized as JSON. This makes it easier for FileMaker applications to interact with many web services. This will also make JSON the de facto standard format for scripts within FileMaker to pass parameters and results to each other, improving code sharing within the…

Wouldn't it be easy if you could specify the cURL options like this:     And take away the need to know the exact syntax and remember which options are supported.   That's where this Custom Functions library comes in.  Enjoy!

I don’t know about you, but we’re all pretty excited about FileMaker 16; it’s a very important release for the platform.   I’ve been working on a demo file that shows off some of the new features working together:  JSON to pass structured data in script parameters, card windows to show data from an entirely different context (or file!) within a…
