    PyFileMaker: questions about that Python library

    planteg

      Hi,

       

      I have a few questions about that Python Library that is a wrapper for XML communication with a server.

       

      I am creating a proof of concept to see if that would be a solution for a customer. I am able to connect to database, set a table to a query and add a new record, but the call to execute a script. doScript(), did not work as expected. I created a script in my test database that does not use anything in the current context: it parses the parameter, a string, and returns a string. When I look at what's returned by doScript(), I get the contents of the first record, instead of the what's returned by the script.

       

      Question no 1

       

      Did someone ever used doScript with success ?

       

      Question no 2

       

      Do you consider PyFileMaker as a 'serious' enough library to do XML with FileMaker. I understand that it's freeware, but the authors do not seem to reply anymore.

       

      Thanks
