    FMRPC -FM Academy Webinar Recording from June 6th






      Thank you for joining us on June 6th for the FMRPC: Let the Server Do the Work webinar. In case you missed it or would like to refer to it again, it is available on FM Academy’s YouTube Channel:

      FMRPC: Let the Server Do the Work


      The webinar showcased FMRPC (FileMaker Remote Procedure Call) which allows FileMaker Pro and FileMaker Go to offload data and processor-intensive operations to FileMaker Server, thus dramatically boosting mobile application performance. FMRPC also allows FileMaker Go to use plug-ins and send JDBC commands, thus enabling mobile FileMaker applications to perform functions it never could before. FMRPC is a new product created by the teams at Skeleton Key and 360Works.


      The agenda included:

      • A side-by-side comparison of application performance with and without FMRPC
      • A demonstration of how easy it is to install and configure FMRPC
      • A demonstration on how easy it is to implement FMRPC into your solution
      • A demonstration of best practices and approaches that make the most of what FMRPC offers

          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.
