Session Description

We begin with a recap of basic implementation by connecting a FileMaker database to the web and editing records through a simple web form submission, however this time it is achieved through the use of AJAX. Next, we'll look at editing multiple records in a single table, similar to a FileMaker table layout using JavaScript, single-field saves, and JSON data to manage the user interface. Finally, we will look at the importance of data separation for managing web delivery and automated deployment and testing of web code.
