Sample text

You’ll need to set up security for every file that you make accessible via the web. There’s no simple rule of thumb for when you should use FileMaker’s access privileges and when you should use the Web Security Databases. Most people find that it’s much simpler to use the built-in access privileges. One of the nice things about the Web Security Databases is that you can make changes to your security while your application is being used. Any new passwords or restrictions you set up take effect immediately.

The inline approach is structurally similar to how other web database applications operate, so if you’ve done web development with other tools, you’ll probably find inlines more intuitive than portals. Portals have one major advantage over inlines—the ability to edit multiple records in one request. When you submit an update of a record that has a portal, both the parent record and all of the portal records are updated. It’s very complicated to do multiple updates in one action if you’ve used inlines.

Instant Web Publishing is utterly simple to set up and use, but it’s not very programmable. You have some limited control over functionality, but for the most part, it gives you a set of features, and if they’re not what you want, you’re out of luck. You can’t “look behind the curtain” to see what’s going on or extend the functionality. IWP is suitable for relatively simple web applications. By “simple,” we don’t mean screen design or number of fields. In fact, since IWP renders your FileMaker layouts as HTML, it’s very easy to produce beautiful looking pages.
