Filemaker API

Hi,

 

I'm working on a project that requires a outside application to talk to Filemaker.

 

The reason for the request, I am looking at an external application that will be dealing with file transfers, sending information and file/s that are to be loaded into Filemaker. What I would like to do, rather than have filemaker running a looped script that looks at a specific folder to see if file/s have been loaded and are complete, I would like my external application to send a 'message' to filemaker saying... 'Hi, I'm ready and waiting'..

 

Is there a location where I would find information relating to Filemakers API? or am I missing something entirely, and is this all contained with Filemaker Plug-ins?

 

any help greatly appreciated.

 

Regards,

 

Pad
