I'm not an expert on other products, but I can tell you what we tried to accomplish with FMRPC:
- Ease of use. FMRPC is super easy to implement and provides a simple, reliable way for a FileMaker developer to move processor or network intensive processes from the FileMaker client to the server.
- Security is critical. We put a lot of effort into FMRPC to make sure credentials and data are handled securely and to give the developer a lot of flexibility. FMRPC never sends unencrypted passwords over the network, even if an SSL certificate is not installed on the server.
- Extending FileMaker Pro and Go. FMRPC allows FileMaker Go to access plug-in functions and it allows Pro and Go to easily execute SQL commands (including SELECT, INSERT, UPDATE, and DELETE) on FMSA without additional drivers or complex configuration. FMRPC also allows scripts to be run asynchronously.
- Support. We have a great team of experienced developers who understand FMRPC and WAN performance issues.
