Title

FileMaker Java integration

Post

     Hello!  I am new to these forums, so let me know if there is a convention I should be following...

     Basically, I'm trying to pass information to FileMaker from an outside program, written in java (executed as a .jar).  I want to be able to tell FileMaker to run a script.

     I know that you can turn on FileMaker sharing, and then send an fmp request.  However, the java standard api does not recognize fmp as a url protocol.  I also know that it is possible to create protocols in java, so that it is recognized.  Has anyone done this?  Or have any suggestions?
