I am planning a new solution and want to integrate   filemaker and Android ;  also do CWP via PHP /  Ruby to Filemaker adapter gem ....


I have 2 options



Create Native Filemaker Database Tables in the solution  and then

a)  Use RESTfm to expose APIs for my Android developer to connect to filemaker

b) Use Filemaker PHP API and create CWP site  or  use the Ruby adapter and create CWP



Create all required tables in Mysql and then

a) Use ESS and integrate with Fileamaker solution via ODBC

b)  Connect Android Application to Mysql Database and create Android App

c)  Use PHP or Ruby   to connect to Msql Database and create  Custom Web Site



Any thoughts on what is a better approach ?  What are the pros and cons of either one ?
