[prMac.com] Melbourne, Australia - FileMaker developer tool specialist, Goya is excited to announce that they've extended their RESTfm product with a web based syncing framework. Developers can now include http based syncing in their FileMaker Pro and FileMaker Go solutions on the desktop and iOS.
RESTfm is the only fully featured RESTful Web Service application for FileMaker Servers, allowing full access to FileMaker tables and scripts from other applications. RESTfm supports XML, JSON, FMPXML, html, text and a simple FileMaker format out of the box, and is extensible via XSLT to any other format. Plus it does full CRUD (Create, Read, Update and Delete) as well as a FileMaker Perform Script option.
The new RESTfmTools showcases all of this functionality by providing working code to build syncing from FileMaker Pro or FileMaker Go into your own solutions. Utilising plugins on the desktop or native functionality in FMGo on iOS you get the best of both worlds.
RESTfmSync does push and pull of data from FileMaker Server and also manages client side deletes.
"It's always been difficult explaining RESTfm to FileMaker Developers who are currently unfamiliar with Web Services. Our RESTfmTools and especially the new RESTfmSync will really enable developers to see the cool things you can do with Web Services. With a very simple implementation guide, and completely accessible code, you can get into sync quickly and within budget." said Nicholas Orr of Goya.
RESTfmSync is part of the RESTfmTools package, included with every licence of RESTfm since 2.1.0. All of the code is included and unlocked for developers to extend on their own. As well as RESTfmSync, there is also web form POST functionality, PayPal IPN payment processing and FastSpring product validation.
Pricing and Availability:
RESTfm is licensed on a per server basis for $399 (USD) per server. There are no extra licences for the RESTfmTools code, including RESTfmSync, so no per client licence for syncing.
Goya is an Australian based software development company specialising in FileMaker Pro developer tools. For over 12 years, we've been developing custom solutions for FileMaker businesses while building up our own suite of developer tools. By making these available to other FileMaker developers, we've saved time and money for other FileMaker developers all over the world. Starting with BaseElements in 2007 we changed the way developers built their solutions by offering them a tool that worked like FileMaker. In 2010 we created RefreshFM for automating updates and it remains the only product in it's category for FileMaker developers. Our free FileMaker plugin is extensively used and highly regarded by the FileMaker community for it's extensive functionality. Now with RESTfm for Web Services we're again re-thinking the things that FileMaker can do and giving more options to developers to extend their solutions. Copyright (C) 1999-2013 Goya Pty Ltd.
