The First Complete Guide to FileMaker Pro
San Francisco, CA In April of this year, No Starch Press will publish what
promises to become the essential reference for FileMaker developers, The
Book of FileMaker 6. (Chris Kubica, $59.95, ISBN 1886411816, April 2003.)
Written by veteran FileMaker developer Chris Kubica, with contributions
from other top FileMaker masters, the book begins with a thorough
introduction to the FileMaker Pro development environment and relational
databases. It quickly moves into advanced topics, such as scripting,
multi-user and cross platform development, and security, and shows how to
build database-driven websites. Developers at all levels learn how to go
beyond the user manual to create robust, dynamic database systems from the
ground up.
There are no truly complete references on FileMaker Pro, says author
Chris Kubica, who has been using FileMaker Pro since its infancy. Sure,
there are FileMaker books that cover advanced scripting and development,
and those that cover some security, web development, and beginner basics,
but none that bring it all together in one book. My book also covers some
important topics that other books have left out, such as how to integrate
with external applications including ODBC and SQL, how to use and develop
plug-ins, and how to plan and market your solutions and synchronize data
with remote locations.
No Starch Press has a history of identifying niche markets and developing
clearly written and engaging books to meet the needs of these markets. The
Book of FileMaker 6 is certainly no exception.
This complete guide to the entire FileMaker Pro product line shows how to:
* Access hidden FileMaker Pro features
* Use the power of portals in robust relational database systems
* Build a hack-proof security system complete with audit trails, privilege
management, and security plug-ins
* Share databases with others using FileMaker Server
* Web-enable databases using FileMaker Unlimited, the Web Server Connector,
and XML
* Automate FileMaker products using ActiveX and AppleScript
* Plan, develop, market and sell commercial FileMaker-based applications
The CD-ROM contains hundreds of complete, ready-to-use example databases
(all of which are discussed in the book), as well as portal tricks,
calculation formulas, script steps, plug-in functions, and troubleshooting
tips. The book covers FileMaker Pro 6, Pro Unlimited, Developer 6, Server,
and Mobile 2.1 for Macintosh and Windows. Many tips and is compatible with
FileMaker s version 3.x, 4.x, and 5.x products.
Chris Kubica is an internationally known FileMaker Pro guru. He has written
for top FileMaker publications and has been a speaker at the annual
FileMaker Developer Conference. He is the President of a virtual consulting
firm in West Lafayette, Indiana.
