I was quite surprised that EAR is not supported in Filemaker runtimes. I didn't discover this until this weekend in the middle of putting an urgent project together.
Actually, according to the web page it is not "Officially" supported in Filemaker Runtime Solutions.
Does anyone know of an "unofficial" way of getting this to work? I really hope Filemaker will "Officially" allow this feature in runtime solutions going forward. Security of databases should really not be an option in this day and age.
